Description:The easiest and most effective way for foundations to demonstrate measurable impact in their community and to attract new donor dollars is to transform their scholarship programs as a part of a strategic postsecondary attainment initiative.


Currently, most community foundations don't yet strategically channel their scholarship dollars towards low-income students who otherwise wouldn't complete postsecondary education. The majority of scholarships awarded from U.S. community foundations and private funders are merit-based - in effect serving as a well-deserved reward for students who have excelled in high school, regardless of whether they have significant financial need. Compounding the problem, in almost every case scholarships are small dollar amounts, non-renewable, and lack support services that many students need to stay on track to graduation.

How can we change this? What approaches might work with donors?
