Grantee Spotlight


The Margoes Foundation invested in Equal Opportunity Schools (EOS) in 2011. EOS partners with high schools to identify and enroll students who are “missing” from the most rigorous classes. This simple process changes the life trajectories of these students.

The foundation’s primary grantmaking programs support low-income and disadvantaged students accessing and completing a post-secondary education as well as those programs providing services to people living with mental illness.
