Grants and in-kind support to USA individuals of color to address racial inequity in the PreK-12 educational system. Funding is intended for individuals leading organizations in early stages of development. The goal of the program is to support innovative ideas to promote equitable educational opportunities for people of color.
Through this new effort, the Fund will invest in innovators of color with bold ideas to advance racial equity in education. The Fund believes that the freedom to thrive is every person’s fundamental right, and that access to a great education, regardless of race or ethnicity, is essential to that freedom. And yet, despite important areas of progress, the promise of an equitable educational opportunity remains unfulfilled. NewSchools is committed to being part of the necessary change and recognizes the need to work on racial equity in a deeper way. Through this funding opportunity, the goal is to help bring powerful, imaginative ideas to life that reach toward a racially equitable education system.
