Happy Holidays! A Look Back at 2016
Happy Holidays from the Schott Foundation!
While 2016 was a tough year on many fronts, we accomplished so much this year, and nothing we did was possible without the hard work of grantees and partners like you.
Here are just a few incredible things we're grateful to you and our many exceptional partners for making possible in 2016:
- We had the largest grantmaking year in our history, providing nearly $3 million in grants to grassroots and policy organization - and we leveraged millions more for our grantees from local and national donors. We co-launched a new fund support gender justice, the NYC Fund for Girls and Young Women of Color.
- The National Opportunity to Learn Network added over 2,500 new members, growing the network to over 27,000 members fighting for education justice.
- We launched our Grassroots Education Webinar series, engaging more than 3,000 participates in education and policy discussions across the country.
- Our local and state partners led key education policy and movement building victories in Massachusetts, California, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, New York, New Orleans, Chicago and Mississippi.
