Grants to USA nonprofit organizations for educational projects operating nationally or internationally. Grants are typically used for seed funding of new or expanding programs. Applicants are required to submit a letter of inquiry prior to submitting a full application. The Funding Source is particularly interested in supporting underserved populations and creative uses of technology.
The mission of the Morris Family Foundation is to support the growth of innovative, effective educational practices. The Foundation supports education in its broadest definition; i.e., the transmission of information. Supported projects center on learners across the lifespan. Projects may take place in traditional school-based settings or may take the form of vocational education, distance-learning or the transmission of cultural information.
Ideally, grantees will assist in building an infrastructure to support an ongoing project. The Foundation will assist grantees in securing future funding, if necessary. The Foundation believes that a good idea + good people + good leadership leads to positive change.
