Zenith operates as a network of innovation schools and ECMC Foundation has earmarked funding specifically to support Zenith’s efforts. Funding from the Foundation supports the testing, adopting and sharing of new approaches to add new programs in high-demand industries, design quality curriculum, modernize program delivery with new technologies and build simulated learning environments to match real-world experience.

ECMC Foundation maintains an open line of communication with the Zenith executive team and Altierus campus staff and reviews potential projects with due diligence. Thanks in part to a strong working relationship with the Zenith senior leadership team, ECMC Foundation is able to guide proposals, monitor progress and provide support to Zenith grantees.
