The Community Foundation Opportunity Network is a coalition of U.S. community foundations working together to ensure that all children, regardless of where they live, have an equal opportunity to reach their full potential.
The effort is now getting a major boost from the Ford Foundation with a $300,000 grant.
The Opportunity Network, which is led by Charitable Foundation President Dick Ober, is an unprecedented effort among community foundations to unite in a sustained effort around a single issue. The 43 participating foundations are collaborating to share best practices, tools and resources to advance opportunity in their own regions, while working with partners on the state, regional and national levels to advance equality of opportunity for all of America’s kids.
