About this grant

This grant will support the Foundation Center in its efforts to help education grantmakers and other stakeholders make informed decisions about how to maximize and leverage public and private dollars to support education. This grant will support maintenance of a Web-based portal that serves as a knowledge hub. It will also support creation of an E-newsletter, two to three Webinars and teleconferences, and development of two reports on education reform topics of interest to grantmakers. This project will foster more funding and interest in education reform and facilitate greater collaboration between public, private, and nonprofit entities working toward shared education reform policies.
