School Investments

Since 2011, we’ve invested nearly $60 million to give 23,000 more students access to high-quality schools.


Our goal is to raise $150 million by 2022 to invest in great schools of all types. To date, we’ve raised more than $75 million.

By the Numbers

We invest in schools of all types. Our committed funds are currently invested in charter (65%), district (25%) and private (10%) schools.


Our goal is to ensure 50,000 more students each year are on the path to college by 2022.
