The William T. Grant Foundation: Contributions to the After-school Field, 2003-2011

From 2003-2011, the Foundation aligned almost all of its grantmaking for program development, communications, and advocacy around improving the quality of after-school programs. Grants made during this period involved three strategies: 1) producing useful research findings, 2) building the capacity of researchers to do high-quality, relevant work and the capacity of practitioners and policymakers to recognize and use the same, and 3) communicating and advocating to strengthen connections among research, policy, and practice. In addition to $20.9 million in grants spread across the three strategies, Foundation staff convened grantee meetings, wrote articles, and made presentations.
