National Public K-12 Education Re-Running Research

May 18th, 2010 by Erinn Andrews Leave a reply »

We have been hard at work researching new causes so that donors can have more Expert Funds with information about high-impact nonprofits from which to choose. We are analyzing the data from our recent surveys on Bay Area arts & culture, Bay Area early childhood education, and Bay Area middle-secondary education and will be adding that content to the website in the coming weeks. At the same time, we have turned our attention to causes at the national level and are starting new research, new surveys to identify high-impact nonprofits in 4 more areas.

In addition, because our original research in education was two years ago as a pilot study, we are going to re-run that cause with the latest version of our methodology. This blog post is to announce that we are starting that process now!

When we looked at education in the Bay Area, we divided it into two areas: early childhood education and middle-secondary education. You can read our post about that here and learn more about the problems education nonprofits are facing in this sector and how we think about the various kinds of nonprofits our experts might consider recommending. For the re-running of our national level education cause, we are going to merge the two categories into one: K-12 education.

National Public K-12 Education

We are interested in learning more about education nonprofits working at the national or multi-state level that are having a high-impact. We’re also interested in nonprofits that may not have reached that level of scale yet but have the potential to scale well and make an impact at the multi-state/national level. We are focused on nonprofits that address some part or all of the K-12 audience.

These organizations could be focused on in- or out-of-school education. They could be working on literacy, school readiness, school reform, the achievement gap, human capital, instructional improvement, curricular content development, low-performing schools turnarounds, data, standards and assessments, after school programming (ie. youth development kind of work), summer programming, parental involvement, etc. Types of nonprofits could include research, policy, advocacy, training, traditional nonprofits or community based organizations, the traditional after-school kind of nonprofits/CBOs, or even the public/charter schools themselves.

If you are an expert on any of these topics, you should be receiving an email from us soon and we hope you will be compelled to participate! If for some reason we have missed you and you think you have a valuable perspective to offer, please contact me at Are there other major education buckets/types of focus areas I missed in the K-12 realm?
