Given that high-quality education is a key driver of social and economic mobility and essential to equitable opportunity for all, the Foundation invests in organizations, programs, and projects that achieve results aligned with the two objectives outlined below. We give priority to initiatives in our areas of interest that expand or enhance multiple programs or schools across a system or network. As a general rule, we do not provide support for individual early childhood programs, or individual district schools, charter schools, public universities, or private colleges/universities. Please note that the "Results Sought" reflect the specific outcomes of interest to us.
