Annie E. Casey Foundation Highlights Progress in the Fight Against Poverty, While Eyeing Storm Clouds

The Annie E. Casey Foundation has been working to promote the well-being of America’s children for more than 60 years. So the Foundation was among the funders that came to mind when GrantStation decided to explore issues related to poverty following our most recent State of Grantseeking survey.

With many of you reporting that a significant number of your clients were at or below poverty level, we wondered: Is there a glimmer of hope for moving families out of that category?
