The Webber Family Foundation, founded in 1999, has distributed approximately $11.6 million (Spring 2013 data) in grants to support a wide variety of educational programs. The Foundation focuses on the gap between proficiency and potential for lower-income youth, with an emphasis on school readiness/early literacy for ages 3-5; out-of-school time enrichment programs for grades 6-12; and high-performing charter schools. We encourage all grant seekers – both previous grantees and new applicants – to review the guidelines on this website and to contact Foundation staff with questions.

The Foundation supports programs in Austin TX, where the Foundation is headquartered, and in Washington DC and the surrounding areas.
