Postsecondary Access and Attainment (PSA2) Impact Group

Dedicated to keep learners learning.

Postsecondary Access and
Attainment (PSA2) Impact Group

Our mission is to increase the number of learners accessing and completing postsecondary education or training, with a particular focus on more historically underserved populations.

To deepen EdFunders member learning and facilitate collaboration, we host networking events, deliver briefings and topical webinars in line with our philanthropic strategies, disseminate timely news and insights, and help shape EdFunders programming to be reflective of PSA2 members’ learning goals.

All EdFunders members are invited to join the PSA2 Impact Group email communication list and consider a more active role on the steering committee. Let us know at
