The Edna McConnell Clark Foundation seeks to transform the life trajectories of vulnerable and economically disadvantaged youth. We make large, long-term investments, frequently partnering with other funders, and promote effective public and private support of nonproﬁts with a potential for growth and compelling evidence that they can help more young people become successful, productive adults.

An EMCF venture called PropelNext helps promising nonprofits build their capacity to use data so they can improve more effectively the life prospects of young people.
