Robin Hood Foundation: Education Program

Funder: 

Robin Hood Foundation

Maximum Award: 

$200,000

The Robin Hood Foundation was created in 1988 to find, fund and provide technical and management assistance to organizations serving poor New Yorkers.

Education is the best poverty-prevention method out there. Robin Hood supports superior schools—public, private and parochial——in the city's poorest neighborhoods. These schools emphasize rigorous academics, dynamic leadership and utilize an extended-day and extended-year model. We also support programs that prevent students from falling behind, reinvigorate teaching and provide students with needed mental and social services.
