Grantees

The Foundation strives to make an impact by providing critical resources and support to our partners. While we cannot reach our goals through our actions alone, we hold ourselves accountable for acting strategically to produce the conditions that will lead to better educational and life outcomes for youth in California and Washington. In addition to working with our partners to understand the impact of individual grants, the Foundation has developed an approach to track the overall impact of investments and to engage in continuous learning.

Grantee Highlights

Californians for Justice – The Foundation is providing general operating support to Californians for Justice (CFJ), the largest student-led education advocacy group in California, to advance its Relationship Centered Schools Campaign which focuses on building positive relationships between students and adults, addressing trauma, and building resilience so every student feels valued and supported.  Entering the fourth year of its campaign, CFJ continues to advance the adoption and effective implementation of policies and practices that enable educators to build supportive relationships with students. This campaign involves statewide advocacy and deep work in four large urban school districts collectively serving over 200,000 students: Fresno Unified, Long Beach Unified, Oakland Unified, and East Side Union High School District in San Jose.  Learn more about the campaign here.

Californians Together – The Foundation is providing general operating support to Californians Together, a statewide coalition of 23 influential organizations representing diverse segments of the education community including teachers, administrators, Board members, parents, and civil rights groups. Collectively, they seek to better educate the state’s 1.6 million English learners by improving California’s schools and promoting equitable educational policy.  Grant support will help Californians Together promote success for California’s English learners through research, advocacy, and monitoring state policy implementation as well as the State Seal of Biliteracy, which recognizes high school graduates for academic proficiency in two or more languages. This important 21st century skill is now an option for measuring college and career readiness in the state accountability system.
Center for the Transformation of Schools at UCLA – The Foundation is providing general operating support for the Center for the Transformation of Schools (CTS), which partners at every level of the education system to improve learning and climate for all students, particularly those furthest from opportunity.  Under the leadership of Professor Pedro Noguera, CTS is building the capacity of education leaders and community partners to design and implement learning environments that raise academic achievement and address the academic, social, and emotional needs of students and families. Key projects include piloting a Multi-Tiered System of Support with Orange and Butte county offices of education and collaborating with the Los Angeles County Office of Education and select districts to improve teaching and learning for students many districts have historically struggled to serve, such as foster students and English learners.

Create CA – The Foundation is supporting Create CA, a statewide coalition committed to ensuring that all students are able to reach their full potential by advancing an education model that prioritizes creativity and the arts.  Coalition members include the California Department of Education, California State PTA, California Arts Council, California Alliance for Arts Education, the California County Superintendents Educational Services Association and other education leaders.  For the past two years, Create CA has led a statewide campaign focused on the importance of creativity as an essential component in education.  Recently, it launched Create at Home, a collection of curated online resources for educators, parents and students to support online and distance learning.

Pivot Learning – The Foundation is providing general operating support to Pivot Learning which partners with educators to design and implement solutions to their greatest challenges in achieving educational justice. Through comprehensive school redesign, leadership development and job-embedded professional learning, they also partner with schools and districts to ensure all students graduate college and career ready.  Grant funds will help Pivot further develop the District Stability Index, a pilot to identify data indicators to measure a school system’s stability and assess district readiness to implement continuous improvement and innovation, with the goal of improving student outcomes.

The Mockingbird Society – Through a groundbreaking study of students who experience foster care and homelessness in Washington State, which combines quantitative data with the lived experiences of youth, Mockingbird is engaging youth advocates to identify the underlying causes and solutions to address the educational systems’ issues and outcomes for these young people. This effort has led to a collaboration of public agencies elevating this data in a report that was submitted to Governor Inslee and State Legislature in January 2020.
