Kristina Christy, Vice President of Atlanta Community Affairs for Wells Fargo, stopped by the Future Foundation (FF) board meeting held at Pricewaterhousecoopers in Midtown Atlanta, to present a check in the amount of $17,500. The grant was awarded to the foundation to support its launch of an education research study being conducted for Woodland and McNair Middle Schools in Fulton County. 400 students will be recruited as a part of the study to validate FF’s 2.0 approach to helping underserved students make smart decisions about academics, social behavior, physical, nutritional, and sexual health—in order to prepare them for bright futures.

With the continued support of community partners like Wells Fargo, Future Foundation’s 2.0 strategy could be the catalyst needed to jump-start education reform not only for students in metro Atlanta, but for low-performing school districts across the nation.

Established four years ago, the Casey Foundation’s Expanding Evidence portfolio aims to strengthen the capacity of emerging programs for families of color. Future Foundation in Atlanta is a prime example.
