About this grant

This grant will continue to support the Foundation Center in its efforts to provide education funders with the most up-to-date, relevant, and in-depth information about education reform to help drive strategy development. Specifically, the Foundation Center will: 1) reorganize the content of the Web-based portal and add other relevant features to the site; 2) launch Philanthropy In/Sight – Education Edition, a custom-designed data visualization tool to help education grantmakers assess areas where their funding investments might have the greatest impact; 3) issue research briefs, shifting the focus of the e-newsletter to include more state information and update the research area of the Web-based portal; 4) support the Moving Forward conference by providing statistical information on education-related funding; and 5) hold a monthly series of teleconferences and webinars during the coming year that will focus on issues of most concern to education grantmakers working on long-term reform efforts.
