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:
  1. 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.
  2. The National Opportunity to Learn Network added over 2,500 new members, growing the network to over 27,000 members fighting for education justice.
  3. We launched our Grassroots Education Webinar series, engaging more than 3,000 participates in education and policy discussions across the country.
  4. 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.
  5. Communication Tools & Resources: We produced 7 policy infographics and 126 blog posts highlighting key policy solutions.
  6. Race and Gender Research: We partnered with four major research institutions to support implicit bias research, including the Center for Policing Equity who is conducting one of the largest school-to-prison pipeline studies in the nation.
  7. We launched our 25th Anniversary celebration with a public forum in Boston: Addressing Racism: Strategies for Systemic Change.
