As a nonprofit venture philanthropy, we use charitable donations to support teams of educators and innovators who are reimagining public education to give all students—particularly those from underserved communities—a better opportunity to achieve their most ambitious dreams and plans.
We cultivate pipelines of innovators, educators and entrepreneurs, and rigorously screen them—investing in those with the greatest potential to improve student learning and make a positive impact. We support our ventures with management assistance and customized resources to help them achieve their missions more quickly and with higher quality. We also work across the sector to build learning networks and share knowledge. Since we are a nonprofit organization, the returns we seek are educational and social, not financial.
NewSchools is known for identifying and supporting some of the highest impact education entrepreneurs in the field.
