Overview

Self-reported by organization

The Partnership for Inner-City Education (The Partnership) was
formed in October 2010, resulting from the merger of two highly successful
not-for-profits serving inner-city elementary and high schools in Manhattan,
the Bronx and Staten Island. The Endowment
for Inner-City Education and the Patrons Program have invested more than $200
million since their inception 20 years ago. They created and oversaw successful
programs and capital improvements, and underwrote scholarships that allowed
needy students the chance to enroll in Catholic schools and gain educational
opportunities positioning them for future success.

Collectively, The Endowment and Patrons Program distributed
nearly $10.2 million and directly impacted approximately 17,000 students in
2009-2010. The Partnership’s disbursements will amount to nearly $11 million in
2010-2011, of which 59% will fund tuition scholarships, 36% for schools and
curriculum enhancement programs and 5% for capital repair projects.
