Not yet a member of Grantmakers for Education's Postsecondary Access and Attainment (PSA2) Impact Group? Learn more here and join here. There is no cost to join this impact group in 2016 and membership is open to all Grantmakers for Education (GFE) members.

Lumina Foundation and the Kresge Foundation will pull back the curtain to reveal to fellow PSA2 Impact Group members a unique view of their current work and future directions. This represents an opportunity to learn about important initiatives that may influence or benefit your own work on a local, regional or national level.

This exclusive event is presented by GFE’s PSA2 steering committee in response to wide interest expressed by GFE members in collegial sharing and prospective areas for collaboration. Topics will include dynamic strategies to support affordability, student supports and degree completion. 

We will also hear about specific funding opportunities that will become open due to Helmsley Trust’s recent decision to cycle out of education philanthropy in order to focus more deeply on medical research and other issues.


  • Nicole McDonald, Ph.D., Strategy Officer, Lumina Foundation
  • Rebecca C. Villarreal, Ph.D., Program Officer, Kresge Foundation
  • Sue Cui, Associate Program Officer or Ryan Kelsey, Program Officer, Helmsley Trust
