Schott builds infrastructure and sustainability for grassroots organizations working for racial justice in public education.

By the numbers

Movements are in it for the long haul. Their resources should be too.

BIPOC youth- and parent-led advocacy organizations are doing the critical work on our nation’s pathway to education justice. They are leading movements at the local level to improve education opportunities for students across the country. These organizations are at the core of maintaining and making our democracy work. 

Schott employs a unique multifaceted approach to support these leaders – as both a funder and advocacy partner – a bridge connecting philanthropy and grassroots organizations – to provide financial and technical support to ensure that all children have an opportunity to learn and thrive.

Schott’s initiatives in grassroots movement building, cross-sector collaboration, and strengthening pro-public education narratives help raise the national consciousness around opportunity gaps as well as support grassroots victories for equitable education.
