McClure Foundation grants available

VERMONT — The J. Warren & Lois McClure Foundation has announced available funding for the 2020-2021 school year for efforts that improve equitable access to the postsecondary and career education that leads to Vermont’s most promising jobs. A supporting organization of the Vermont Community Foundation, the McClure Foundation envisions a Vermont where no promising job goes unfilled for lack of a qualified applicant. 

The McClure Foundation’s primary interest is in funding growth-stage efforts and programs seeking funding to pilot a model or big idea, demonstrate effectiveness, expand delivery, or improve systems coordination in alignment with the Foundation’s mission. 

For the 2020-2021 school year, McClure Foundation funding will prioritize projects that accomplish one or more of the following: improve public, community, and/or family awareness of career pathways and the importance of continued education after high school; expand postsecondary access and increase postsecondary success so that Vermont students of all ages and backgrounds can benefit from postsecondary education and training; and strengthen the pathways between education and employment. 

Nonprofits and municipal entities interested in applying for funding can submit a Letter of Interest by 5 p.m., Feb. 6. Additional information about the grant is available at mcclurevt. org.
