Kresge Foundation Accepting Applications for Next Generation Initiative

The Human Services Program at the Kresge Foundation has announced a new funding and learning opportunity as part of its Next Generation (NextGen) Initiative, now in its second year.

As part of this initiative, Kresge will invest in those nonprofit organizations and public agencies working to advance the social and economic mobility (SEM) of families. The initiative is a two-year program consisting of three components: 1) leadership development; 2) development of a community of practice; and 3) the creation of organizational and cohort action plans designed to advance and accelerate SEM using a two-generation, whole-family approach.

Grants of up to $500,000 over two years will be awarded to up to ten human service organizations and/or agencies. As part of this initiative, grantees will participate in a learning and collaboration network that will include two meetings per year.

To be eligible, applicants should be characterized as person-centered; outcomes-based; data-driven; applying a racial equity lens; and focused on greater sector impact and systems change. Additionally, these organizations should adhere to sector best practices such as brain-science informed and two-generation, whole family approaches.

See the Kresge Foundation for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

Deadline: January 15, 2019
