Grants to this Grantee
for the Fund for Shared Insight donor collaborative  
The Fund for Shared Insight is a funder collaborative focused on increasing foundation openness in service of greater effectiveness. This includes foundations sharing more openly about their work, as well as being more open to what others have to share with us, especially feedback from the people foundations ultimately seek to help with our funding. Shared Insight has eight core funders and 28 additional funders who collectively contribute between $6 and $8 million each year to a pooled fund at Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors. To date, the fund has made 77 grants to 70 organizations totaling $13.8 million and is committed to rigorous measurement and sharing what it learns.

for evaluating the alignment of instructional materials with the Common Core State Standards  
Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors is one of the world’s largest philanthropic service organizations. This grant will provide continued support for organizational capacity development for EdReports — the group’s new independent entity that reviews yearlong math and English curricula focusing on indicators of high quality, such as alignment with the Common Core State Standards and support of deeper learning. These reviews help the teachers, principals, and state and district leaders responsible for purchasing materials make more informed decisions, supporting the goal of fostering "smart demand" for deeper learning instructional materials.
