Deloitte Foundation grants help boost students’ success

Helping vulnerable high school students in local communities

In response to the extraordinary disruption to student learning due to the pandemic and related economic fallout, the Deloitte Foundation donated a total of $600,000 to nonprofit organizations in eight original COVID-19 hotspot locations across the country. These grants helped students from underrepresented backgrounds and underresourced communities - primarily students of color - persist on pathways to college and career success.

Our commitment to furthering education for diverse learners

As the COVID-19 pandemic began to send shock waves throughout the education sector, the Deloitte Foundation made one-time donations to fund education initiatives across 18 nonprofit organizations working to minimize learning obstacles for more than 100,000 vulnerable high school students nationwide. Our funding was used by the nonprofit organizations to:

  • Enhance online content to accommodate virtual programming
  • Provide broadband access for virtual online learning programs and internships
  • Offer devices and technical support to help close the digital divide
  • Hire college professors to facilitate virtual college-level courses for high school students
  • Enable college and employment application and interview preparation
  • Award college scholarships for graduating high school seniors
  • Facilitate mentoring, hands-on job shadowing and job training, career exploration, and employment opportunities
  • Deliver educator training to aid students who experienced loss and adversity during the pandemic in building resilience as well as strategies to cope through new life circumstances

Below are a few examples of the critical support these grants made possible to affect so many during this unprecedented pandemic:
