Edna McConnell Clark Foundation

After helping people and communities in need for a half-century, the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation (EMCF) is investing all its assets within the next decade to leave a lasting impact on children and families living in poverty. Since 1999, EMCF has championed economically disadvantaged youth, and the collaborative, performance-based investment approach we developed helps philanthropists and nonprofits achieve greater impact. Now we are completing our work through three strategies: supporting the growth and independence of Blue Meridian Partners, making final investments in our Youth Development Fund grantees, and seeing the work of PropelNext continue beyond the life of the foundation.
