The Schott Foundation Celebrates 25 Years of Impact!

Resourcing Movements
A look at Schott's approach to supporting movements for education justice

Established in 1991 by the Leeds and Jobin-Leeds families, the Schott Foundation has been rooted in a commitment to high-quality education for all young people. Over the past 25 years, Schott has transitioned into a public charity and become a national leader in social justice philanthropy, promoting equity in public education for all students, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation or zip code.

In observance of our anniversary, the Schott Foundation for Public Education celebrates 25 years of accelerating advocacy and delivering impact. Starting in September 2016, Schott will embark on a journey of reflection, thought leadership and accelerated impact — looking back at the past 25 years of supporting grassroots efforts for public education and ahead toward the urgent task of accelerating the advocacy necessary to create healthy living and learning communities that provide each child an opportunity to learn.

Over the next ten months, Schott will host a series of special live events and webinars that highlight critical conversations and the leaders who are pushing them forward. The Anniversary celebration will culminate in New York City in May 2017 with an anniversary gala.
