The Education Circle
This giving circle will fund organizations dedicated to improving the educational outcomes of youth of color in the United States. This circle has a high risk tolerance and preference for grassroots and direct service organizations that are led by persons of color.
Theory of Change:
To address systemic racial inequities in this country, and particularly, to directly address achievement gaps between youth of color and their peers, this circle will use data and impact assessment tools to target funding to grassroots nonprofits that yield the greatest impact for children of color.
By supporting nonprofit organizations that are led by and that target communities of color, this giving circle will not only work to reverse the achievement gap, but in the process, will also contribute to building a talent-pipeline of people of color in the nonprofit education reform space.
