About this grant

The Wabash County Promise Initiative is a community-wide initiative designed to advance educational attainment and create a generation of educated, engaged and economically self-sufficient young people. This grant will enable the Community Foundation of Wabash County to further the design and implementation of the early distribution scholarship component, which models the use of children’s savings accounts as a tool to promote college-going identities, high school graduation and postsecondary success. The component also models how community foundations can support children’s savings account initiatives and demonstrate a promising complement to traditional scholarships.
