Wellington Management Foundation - US Foundation
Grants to California, Illinois, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Australia, Japan, Singapore, and Hong Kong organizations to enhance educational opportunities for economically disadvantaged children and youth in eligible communities. Focus areas include academic improvement, educational transitions, extended learning time, and career readiness.
The US-based Wellington Management Foundation gives Annual Grants to programs that improve the educational opportunities for youth in traditionally underserved and economically challenged communities in eastern Massachusetts, greater Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco Bay area, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Sydney.
The US Foundation funds programs that provide youth from traditionally under-resourced communities with access to high-quality academic programs and educational opportunities. The Foundation believes a strong academic foundation can provide a clear and positive path for the lives of young people. Accordingly, the US Foundation primarily aims to select organizations and programs that support academic improvement, educational transitions, extended learning time, and career readiness.

Annual Grants are fixed at $25,000 for new organizations and $50,000 for returning grantees.
Grants to new organizations will be awarded with a three-year expectation for grant making, pending successful annual check-ins. After year three, new organizations will be put through a critical review to determine continued funding, contingent on achievement of mutually agreed upon objectives, goals, and outcomes. Those that are successful can anticipate an additional seven years of funding (10 years total), pending successful annual check-ins. After 10 years, organizations must take a meaningful pause before reapplying.
