About this grant

The Interfaith Education Fund was created in 1989 to assist organizations affiliated with the Industrial Areas Foundation in gaining influence over the conditions affecting their communities. The grantee provides professional organizing, research, and technical support for the affiliate organizations and has a record of success in the areas of economic development and education reform. This grant will provide general purpose support to the grantee so that it can become an increasingly flexible organization, building the capacity of its 28 member organizations in seven states in the areas of leadership training, staff supervision, professional organizer development, program evaluation, and issue research in response to the needs expressed locally.
