Michael And Susan Dell Foundation
Category: Children, Youth & Families
DescriptionThe Foundation, established in 1999 by Michael and Susan Dell, seeks to make a difference to children living in urban poverty. Based in Austin, Texas, the Foundation initially emphasized improving education and children’s health in Central Texas but has since expanded to reach children across the globe. The Foundation assists organizations working in urban communities in the United States and India. Its vision is to focus on opportunities with the greatest potential to directly and measurably transform the lives of children living in urban poverty. Areas of funding include urban education, childhood health, and family economic stability. Urban education grants in the United States work to close the achievement gap by supporting programs that seek to improve large urban school districts in cities nationwide. In India, education grants focus on increasing access to primary education and improving basic literacy skills. Childhood health grants in the United States support national school-based programs that engage teachers, students, and their community in healthy eating choices and regular physical activity. Family economic stability grants concentrate on the urban slums of India. Additional information including an online grant proposal form is available on the Web site. The Foundation is not affiliated with Dell computers.
