About this grant

This grant provides continued support to the Grantmakers for Education, a national association that works to advance the field of education philanthropy. Its premier event continues to be an annual conference held during the fall of each year that attracts 200-300 grantmakers. The annual conference provides grantmakers with opportunities to hear from experts in the field, as well as network with peers. The purpose of this grant increase is to provide additional support for the 2008 conference, which takes place in Baltimore, Maryland. The conference will also highlight Mott’s study of community-driven reform.
