Economic Mobility

Studies show that in Massachusetts, an individual seeking a living wage job must not only have a high school degree, but must also have at least some post-secondary education and be proficient in the English language. In keeping with these findings, the Richard and Susan Smith Family Foundation has supported organizations that focus on helping low-income individuals gain the skills and education they need to move up the economic ladder and enjoy greater opportunity.

The Foundation is not accepting unsolicited proposals in this giving area at this time. Please review the Frequently Asked Questions for further information about the Foundation’s processes.
