Investment Areas

Every young person should finish high school prepared and inspired to reach their most ambitious dreams and plans. Teams of educators and innovators all over the country are already working on this challenge. Our strategy helps accelerate and strengthen their efforts.

When we think about reimagining public education, this means we must help ensure all students develop a strong academic foundation along with other mindsets, habits and skills they need for success in life. We do this through three investment areas: Innovative Public Schools, Education Technology and Diverse Leaders.

Innovative Public Schools

We seek to support teams of educators who are designing new, innovative public schools and redesigning existing ones so students feel accepted, encouraged and challenged. In these PreK-12 public district and charter schools, educators are rethinking how they use time, talent and technology to better serve all students. Students are empowered to take ownership of their learning, be creative and build deep connections with teachers.

Education Technology

Innovative schools need tools and services that support educators and help students reach their goals. We seek to identify the most pressing needs in educational technology and then invest in those areas. Our aim is to increase the availability and effectiveness of products that deepen and enrich student learning and better serve educators.

Diverse Leaders
