The State of Education Philanthropy

Program Dates 
February 27, 2019 - ongoing

Grantmakers for Education released the results of its 10th anniversary education philanthropy benchmarking survey, Trends in Education Philanthropy: Benchmarking 2018-19. The results point to several important trends in education giving that have implications for learners across the nation. At several regional events, we will present the trends and facilitate a public conversation with leading philanthropists and nonprofits about what the trends mean and whether we, as a field, are heading in the right direction.

  • February 27, New York City, hosted by the Ford Foundation.
  • March 7, Chicago, hosted by The Joyce Foundation and the W. Clement and Jessie V. Stone Foundation.
  • March 27, Washington, D.C., hosted by the American Federation of Teachers.
