For Grantseekers

EMCF's staff and operations have transitioned to Blue Meridian Partners, which is helping the Foundation fulfill its commitments to Youth Development Fund grantees.

As EMCF invests all its assets within the next decade in making an enduring impact on the lives of children and families mired in poverty in the U.S., it is no longer soliciting or reviewing inquiries or information from grantseekers.

Blue Meridian Partners, a newly independent philanthropic organization incubated by EMCF for finding and funding scalable solutions to problems that trap America's young people and families in poverty, is embarking on a new phase of growth, expanding its membership, capital base and portfolio of national grantees and regional strategies.

Please visit for more information about its selection criteria and how to access its brief Interest Survey. The information shared through this form will be added to Blue Meridian's national database of potential investment opportunities.

PropelNext, an EMCF initiative that helps promising nonprofits improve their collection and use of data to produce better outcomes for youth, launched a new cohort in Northern California in fall 2018. EMCF is seeking a new home for the initiative that will carry on its work and innovate its program model. Please visit more information.
