- For general support.
The Open Philanthropy Project awarded a grant of $50,000 to the College and Community Fellowship (CCF) for general support. This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on criminal justice reform.
CCF focuses on increasing access to education for formerly incarcerated people via direct service work in New York City (including academic support and peer mentoring programs), policy advocacy, and technical assistance. CCF’s direct service work informs its national advocacy and national technical assistance programs, both of which aim to increase awareness about issues related to mass incarceration and education, and to encourage community members and decision-makers to push for criminal justice reform.
