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.
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.
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.
