What We Do

The Edvance Foundation’s work focuses on three key areas:


We strengthen partnerships between public and private institutions of higher education in the U.S. and abroad. These partnerships focus on fostering greater collaboration, strengthening ties to the regional economy, and creating efficiencies that support a breadth of strategic objectives including program development, resource allocation, strategic planning, and campus facilities management.


We create programs of regional and national significance that support and advance institutions of higher education and unlock opportunities for college-bound students. Our innovative programs can be scaled to accommodate exponential participation, replicated in diverse educational settings, and sustained over the long term.

Best Practices

Our decades of experience, national reach, and commitment to best practices enable us to develop bold, insightful approaches to the challenges facing America’s higher education institutions.
