At the Support Fund, we believe that realizing the power of education to propel social progress and racial justice requires a healthy ecosystem of national, state, and community leaders that share a commitment to the democratic purpose of public schools. Our theory of action is based on the power of networks to catalyze and sustain systems change for the benefit of all students.

We are home to the Education Funder Strategy Group, Grantmakers for Thriving Youth, and the Data Funders Collaborative. Each of these networks serves a specific purpose and we all share a commitment to advancing an equity-centered, forward-looking vision and value set to prepare all students to thrive in today’s world. The Support Fund is nourishing this network of networks to align multiple stakeholders around the core value of public education as an essential democratic institution for strengthening our country and the learning and life outcomes for every child in America.


No society can thrive in a technological, knowledge-based economy by starving large segments of its population of learning. We must provide all of our children with what should be an unquestioned entitlement — a rich and inalienable right to learn.
