GFE Connects is an online community created to provide you, our members, a space to build and deepen relationships among education philanthropists. With a trusted and diverse group of colleagues, you can:

  • Cultivate ideas.
  • Share resources.
  • Stay on top of the latest issues.

This is a place focused specifically on you and your needs, without all the noise and distraction of social media.



  • You don’t need to wait for the next conference or convening to connect with others in the field; the GFE Connects community is available to all Grantmakers for Education members any time and any place.
  • GFE Connects helps our community unite around the common cause of improving outcomes and expanding opportunities for all learners.
  • GFE Connects provides a neutral, democratic learning community where each member can contribute their unique perspective.


GFE Connects allows you the flexibility to create the community you need. You are welcome to join any of the current groups, many of which are organized around impact areas or funding interests. You can also create a new group and invite others to join.

By connecting with other GFE members, engaging in conversations, joining discussion groups and sharing resources, our online community enables you to deepen your knowledge and refine your grantmaking practices.
