Future Impact Groups

If your topic area of interest isn’t currently represented, we’d love to talk to you about starting an impact group. Contact Letitia Dowling, senior operations manager.

Lead an Impact Group

Grantmakers for Education’s impact groups rely on the leadership and engagement of funders like you; funders who are interested in having conversations and making contributions to the field. As a member of a GFE impact group steering committee, members take on a leadership role in the field, in their specific area of interest. As a steering committee member you will have a voice in developing an agenda for the group and planning “offerings” for the field. Contact Letitia Dowling if you are interested in joining a current or future impact group steering committee.

Join an Impact Group

Join an impact group and benefit from offerings designed around your specific area of interest. You can participate in, and contribute to, virtual and in-person discussion. You can contribute your perspective and provide your colleagues in the field with access to your work products related to this topic area. To become a member of an impact group simply log on to GFE Connects and join the virtual impact groups in progress. Through GFE Connects, you will be informed of associated offerings and engagement opportunities.
