Theme Statement

Supporting Students in Overcoming Adversity: Agency, Justice, Equity

We are taking inspiration from the students who lived through Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent overhaul of the education system. Local successes and challenges will stimulate national conversations about transforming education, from birth through postsecondary success. Drawing on brain science and the latest evidence, we will explore the social, emotional and academic dimensions of learning. Our theme affirms the commitment in our community to equity of opportunity and outcomes for students, especially those who have experienced trauma, racial injustice and disability.

About the Conference

Our signature program

Every year, we bring together a dynamic mix of education grantmakers, practitioners, youth and experts to share talent, insights and strategies. Focused on improving outcomes for all learners, the conference is designed to challenge education philanthropists as they adapt to a rapidly evolving field that is ever more interconnected.

Our compelling program pushes boundaries, challenges assumptions and capitalizes on the diversity of perspectives across the field. Attendees return year after year and consistently give our program, and the networking opportunity it provides, high marks.

  • An informal and balanced environment that allows freedom to explore challenging topics.
  • A focus on today’s relevant and pressing issues in education and philanthropy.

About Grantmakers for Education

Become a Conference Sponsor

A unique opportunity to invest in strengthening philanthropy to improve outcomes and opportunities for all learners

Once a year, Grantmakers for Education members from around the country—from foundations big and small, with grantmaking budgets that range from tens of thousands to multi-millions of dollars—gather at our annual conference because they believe that we can strengthen our impact on education when we all work together and learn from each other’s successes and challenges.

An investment in this year’s annual conference is an investment in advancing a program specifically designed to deepen our conversations and further our actions around topics that will have a profound impact on the future of education. The conference provides an important opportunity for education grantmakers to work together toward the day when all learners succeed in their education and career choices, resulting in a positive impact on their community and the nation.
