The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $50,000 to the College and Community Fellowship (CCF) for general support. CCF works to increase 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.

This is a discretionary grant.
