October 28, 2022

The William T. Grant Foundation announced two new appointments to the Board of Trustees: Alex Doñé, effective October 2022, and Elizabeth Birr Moje, effective December 2022.   


Adam Gamoran, President of the William T. Grant Foundation, said, “Elizabeth’s distinguished academic career and her partnership work in the Detroit community aligns well with the Foundation’s interests in reducing inequality and building bridges between research, policy, and practice.  We are fortunate to have two worthy successors to our retiring trustees, Judson Reis, president of Sire Management Corporation, and Prudence Carter, the Dowling Professor of Sociology at Brown University, whose terms are ending this year.”

The William T. Grant Foundation supports research to improve the lives of young people ages 5-25 in the United States. Throughout its 80-year history, the foundation has awarded grants to prominent researchers yielding research that has been pivotal in improving outcomes for youth and the systems in which they develop. The foundation is currently focused on funding research that has the potential to reduce inequality in youth outcomes, and to improve the use of research evidence in ways that benefit young people.
