About Fund II
At the heart of Fund II Foundation is a deep commitment to advancing social change and creating an enduring American legacy.
Fund II Foundation was established in 2014 for the purpose of making grants to public charities. To date, Fund II Foundation has made grants worth nearly $250 million to a broad range of charities, including The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, The United Negro College Fund, NPower, The Opportunity Network and The National Park Foundation.
Two years ago, Fund II Foundation developed Cradle to Greatness, a framework that aligns our strategic grantmaking priorities with outcomes that prepare and propel generations of talent. The framework ignites innovation, demands fair access, and accelerates the careers of young people who have been overlooked and underestimated.
To rekindle hope and community economic success, we have doubled down on our investments in preparing and supporting students studying in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. We are committed to facilitating their growth to become thriving professionals and entrepreneurs through internX, a new platform that matches promising talent with internship opportunities in companies throughout the United States.
Technology touches every industry. It is a field where the demand for talent is growing exponentially. We understand to engage our youth of today; we must connect our future to theirs.
