To date, approximately 65 percent of our committed funds are invested in creating high-performing seats in charter schools, 25 percent in district schools, and 10 percent in private schools. The majority of our funding has fueled the turnaround of low-performing schools and the growth of high-performing schools. Approximately 16 percent of the funds are invested in the incubation and startup of new schools.

All schools in the Great Schools Fund portfolio serve predominantly low income and minority students, who have historically had less access to high-quality schools.
