  • Scholarships for East Chicago Students

  • Our Investment into East Chicago's Education

    We have invested in East Chicago’s public, parochial and charter schools, including $5.5 million in books, and building and grounds’ improvement.
  • Collaboration Network Initiative

    In 2008, Foundations of East Chicago grantees brought individuals and members of agencies and organizations together for the first time in an atmosphere of support to work systematically toward solutions to existing and emerging challenges in Education and Public Safety that cannot be solved by one agency alone. FEC budgeted $200,000 to support this new collaborative approach.
