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 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 Network group to increase access to high quality, out-of-school time experiences for young people and build systemic supports to sustain the field.
