Our Vision

“The essence of our work revolves around focused grant making, moving towards measurable goals, and driven by thoughtful strategies.”

– Dwight L. Stuart, Jr., Chairman of the Board of the Stuart Foundation.

The Stuart Foundation supports effective education systems in California and Washington that provide opportunities for all students to learn, achieve and thrive. Primarily working through education systems, we promote strategies that nurture students to be self-reliant, succeed in education and careers, and engage meaningfully in their communities.

Voices from the Field

Every year, Education Week selects outstanding K-12 leaders who are bringing about systemwide change to benefit students and educators. For its 2017 class of Leaders To Learn From, Education Week recognizes 14 bold and committed district leaders who demonstrate a powerful combination of tenacity and humility when it comes to their pursuit of raising student achievement, supporting teams of educators, and bringing positive changes to their broader communities.
