We help student journalists complete their education and expand their impact.
The mission of the E4S Foundation is to provide financial support to undergraduate students pursuing a college degree in journalism, with a special focus on young people excited by journalism that supports those who speak out and act on behalf of positive social change.
Though financial need is a consideration for support, candidates are evaluated holistically and need not represent any specific demographic position, academic background, or regional affiliation.
The E4S Foundation is funded by private and organizational donors, augmented with significant support from Enzo's family.
It is a project of The Giving Back Fund, an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) public charity (EIN 04-3367888).
The Giving Back Fund has exclusive legal control over contributed assets to ensure compliance with all relevant philanthropic standards and best practices.
Beginning in the Spring term of 2023, the E4SFoundation will provide financial support to students for a variety of purposes, which include but are not limited to:
• Stipends for Internships
• Specific Journalistic Projects
• Organization of events that align with, or help promote, the mission of the Foundation.
Tuition funds will be dispersed directly to the student's academic institution. All other financial support is distributed to recipients in accordance with the best practices established by the Giving Back Fund.
