About this grant

This grant will support the National Public Education Support Fund in its efforts to help maximize philanthropy’s effectiveness in improving public education systems in the United States, from birth to career, through public policy reform. Specifically, this grant will allow the National Public Education Support Fund to: 1) provide a forum for leading education foundations to communicate and collaborate in leveraging systemic policy reforms; 2) facilitate communication between key federal policymakers and funders; 3) promote the development of a world-class education system in the United States by providing philanthropists and policymakers with an international perspective of policies and practices in top-performing countries; and 4) maximize the members’ philanthropic impact by facilitating joint action to achieve greater effectiveness at a lower cost to individual foundations.
