Our Postsecondary Education Report

In 2008 the J. Warren and Lois McClure Foundation partnered with the Vermont Community Foundation to study the ways philanthropy could improve access to higher education in Vermont. They recognized that by improving access to higher education they could address many issues at once including education, workforce readiness, youth development, economic prosperity, civic engagement, and equal opportunity.

This research has provided direction for our annual school-year grants to on-the-ground programs and to initiatives keyed to promoting long-term and systemic improvements in the access that Vermonters have to postsecondary education.

We are pleased to share with you the results of this work:
