This proposal requests funding from the Ascend Innovation Fund for 13 months of creative and strategic planning on the part of a new collaboration primarily between the Evanston Community Foundation (ECF) and Northwestern University. ECF will be the prime recipient of the grant award (Sara Schastok, ECF CEO, will be PI), and ECF will subcontract to Northwestern University. This is an egalitarian partnership between ECF and Northwestern University. The focus of the proposal is on planning and piloting a two-generation human capital program with an eventual aim toward scaling and replication once a pilot model has been tested and additional funds have been raised.
