Overview
This grant would continue the Foundation's commitment to California education reform by funding a new project at Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors (RPA) that will make grants to nonprofits with a strong track record of state policy work to improve student achievement, especially among underserved students. RPA, which provides philanthropic program, administrative, and management services for 160 donors in seventy countries, will hire consultants with deep knowledge of California education policy to manage a competitive grant application process. RPA will award grants to support a diverse mix of high-performing organizations working to make state education policy more effective. The majority of awards will be multiyear, general operating support grants to best-in-class organizations, rather than project grants. In line with the Program's past budgets, roughly two-thirds of this funding will be allocated to organizations working on K-12 issues and one-third to those working on California community college issues.
