Benchmarking 2010: Trends in Education Philanthropy

One pronounced shift is the increased number of funders engaging with education policy, as well as the widening roles they are playing in this arena, a sea change I have witnessed during my eight years at GFE. The second development involves funders’ deepening efforts to coordinate and align their work with fellow grantmakers—and with other stakeholders.
