For Philanthropy

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

Schott’s unique multifaceted approach to support these leaders — as a funder and advocacy partner, as well as a bridge connecting philanthropy and grassroots organizations — provides financial and technical support to ensure that all children have an opportunity to learn and thrive.

Philanthropic Resources

Donors and grantmakers need accurate and insightful resources to inform your practice and increase your impact.


Endow Now

Schott’s goal is to vest resources with the organizations closest to the work, challenges, and solutions. Vesting endowments in these organizations will ensure the movement is less dependent on the whims of philanthropic interests. An endowment can ensure that organizations can plan for the future effectively.

Loving Cities

A multi-city, multi-program effort to organize and support local and state grassroots leaders in efforts to replace local policies and practices rooted in racism with those that create the loving systems needed for all children and families to succeed.
