About this grant

This grant provides continued support to Grantmakers for Education, the only national association that works to advance the field of education philanthropy. With a mission to strengthen philanthropy’s capacity to improve educational outcomes and opportunities for all students, the organization helps foundation leaders and staff become more effective grantmakers by boosting their knowledge and networks. Specifically, the organization will: 1) sustain and improve overall programming and communications activities that help education grantmakers succeed in their work; and 2) provide staffing support and coordination to the Working Group on Education Organizing, a national network of more than 150 funders interested in community organizing for school improvement and reform.
