At NewSchools Venture Fund, we accelerate and strengthen the efforts of educators and innovators who are making a positive difference in public education. We seek to reimagine learning to help all students succeed now and in the future.

Your investment in NewSchools enables us to offer not just funding, but partnership and support, to innovators who seek to build strong schools and organizations dedicated to a more equitable future in education. We support entrepreneurs in four investment areas: Innovative Public Schools, Learning Solutions, Diverse Leaders, and Racial Equity. Our commitment is that 50% of the investments we make will fund organizations led by Black and Latino innovators so they can bring their ideas to fruition.

We invite you to learn more about NewSchools and the impact your donation will make by contacting Maggie Andrews, Director of Development, at
