Foundation for Ensuring Access and Equity

After serving on nonprofit boards that did little more than raise money and host annual conferences, Mr. Wynn founded the Foundation for Ensuring Access and Equity, whose nonprofit purpose is to expand college access for students from underrepresented groups and marginalized communities.

The primary community partner is the Turner Chapel AME Church, where the foundation has access to facilities and the support of volunteers to provide free college and scholarship planning workshops to students and families throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area.

The foundation serves as a recommending organization for the Posse Foundation and Meyerhoff Scholars program, and is partnering with schools and school districts throughout the United States and Bermuda. The foundation is currently implementing Mr. Wynn’s College Planning Cohort Model in schools in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas and working with community college students in California.

The work of the foundation is researched-based and research-responsive. The community workshops and College Planning Cohorts are closing the college knowledge gap, increasing college match, expanding scholarship opportunities, and providing students with comprehensive college-bound plans designed to gain admission into the right colleges and to receive the necessary scholarships and institutional aid to avoid or minimize student loan debt.
