About this grant

This grant provides continued support to Grantmakers for Education, a primary national association that works to advance the field of education philanthropy. With the goal of strengthening philanthropy to improve outcomes and expand opportunities for learners from birth to career, with a focus on educational equity, the grantee helps foundation leaders and staff become more effective grantmakers by boosting their knowledge and their networks. Specifically, the grantee 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 Out-of-School Time impact group to increase access to high-quality out-of-school time experiences for young people.
