Tortora Sillcox Family Foundation

New York, NY

Mission

The mission of the Tortora Sillcox Family Foundation is to contribute to the steadily growing number of young people in New York City who overcome socioeconomic barriers to graduate from public high school - and then from college - prepared for meaningful employment and robust civic participation. 
 
Increasingly our economy and society are knowledge based. New York’s young people seek economic security and rewarding lives, and our city requires a skilled workforce and citizens who can solve complex problems. Meeting both the individual and the collective needs will be a function of education, but a high school diploma is no longer enough to ensure successful participation in the rapidly-evolving economy and vibrant civic society of New York City. 

 
Organizations supported by the foundation advance the foundation’s mission by increasing the level of academic rigor and the level of guidance and support for students, resulting in increased rates of high school graduation, college enrollment, and college persistence. 

 

The foundation achieves its mission through support of non-profit organizations that:

·         Educate and guide underserved young people, thus helping them to live civically responsible and financially secure lives;

 

·         Provide intellectual connectivity, organizational capacity, human capital development, and opportunities for efficiency to schools that effectively serve young people living in poverty;

 

·         Communicate the needs of low-income students and effective urban schools to the public and policy makers;

 

·         Provide strategic guidance to state and local governmental employees with the responsibility for implementing school reform initiatives.

The Foundation receives requests primarily by invitation but is open to email inquiries at: [email protected](mailto:[email protected]) .
