Join the NYC youth funders for a session that will feature the development of and lessons learned from the College Completion Innovation Fund (CCIF), a unique collaborative model for college persistence and completion grantmaking managed by Graduate NYC. Catalyzed by a challenge grant from the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation in 2015, CCIF has engaged national and local funders for a collective investment of nearly $2 million.

New York City-based undergraduate colleges and nonprofit community-based organizations have received support for projects that aim to significantly improve student completion outcomes. Copies of the inaugural report of the CCIF will be on hand.

  • Pioneering initiatives have the potential to help young people make great strides in obtaining a college degree
  • How to create important learning opportunities that will benefit the college success field as a whole
  • The CCIF inaugural report
