What We Do

We partner with local leaders to create innovative public school systems.

We believe that public schools can help move children out of poverty and into thriving adult lives. This is possible when all children have fair access to quality schools, when educators have the flexibility to meet the diverse needs of students, when education leaders reflect the communities they serve, and when families most impacted by the system have the power to change it.


We provide grant funding in partner cities to give all students — especially those historically denied access — a quality education

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion:

At the core of our mission is the belief that those closest to kids should have more power in our public schools, and that an excellent education system is an inclusive one. We celebrate diversity in all forms and believe we must work across lines of difference to advance equity. Our investment approach, partnerships, and the composition of our team and board are a testament to this principle.
