The Kresge Foundation has awarded a three-year, $850,000 grant to Teachers College in support of the project, "Structuring the Student Experience for Success," directed by Thomas Bailey, the George and Abby O'Neill Professor of Economics and Education, and director of TC's Community College Research Center (CCRC).
Teachers College has received a five-year $50,000 pledge from the Gloria and Hilliard Farber Foundation to enhance The Leslie R. Williams Memorial Scholarship Fund. The fund provides scholarship assistance to children who otherwise would not be able to attend the Rita Gold Center.
Giving Targets Scholarship as Overall Totals Rise
Foundation grant totals are nearly 50 percent higher than last year’s total at this time, thanks in large part to significant pledges for research and program support such as those from the Kresge Foundation and the Wyncote Foundation. In all, fundraising for the first quarter produced more than $3.56 million in gifts, grants and pledges, an increase of more than 12 percent over last year’s totals at this time.
