Trends in Education Philanthropy: A Roundtable with Foundation Leaders
Connection: The Journal of the New England Board of Higher Education, v20 n5 p29-30, 32 Spr 2006
In February 2006, Nellie Mae Education Foundation President and Chief Executive Officer Blenda J. Wilson convened a roundtable discussion on trends in education philanthropy. Wilson's guests were Ron Ancrum, president of Associated Grant Makers, which serves grantmaking members in Massachusetts and New Hampshire; Nancy P. Roberts, president of the Connecticut Council for Philanthropy; and Wendy L. Ault, executive director of the MELMAC Education Foundation in Maine. This article presents excerpts of their conversation about barriers to increasing college education in New England, the role foundations play in addressing these barriers, and the means of tapping into the potential of philanthropy to increase college attainment.
