Events

EdVestors hosts several annual events for supporters to learn about issues in urban education, connect with others, and show their support for urban school improvement. Annual events are:

EdVestors Showcase

EdVestors’ annual Showcase takes place in April and features innovative projects supported by the School Solutions Seed Fund. The event is an opportunity for frontline educators to share their work with a broader audience. Guests in attendance have an opportunity to take one-on-one with Seed Fund project leaders informally, and observe formal presentations from a smaller group of projects on what they’ve learned so far. The 2017 Showcase will be held on:

Wednesday, April 12, 2017
Program: 4:00-6:00 pm
Reception: 6:00-7:00 pm
District Hall

Organize an Event

EdVestors welcomes supporters interested in organizing an event to benefit Boston schools. Successful events raise awareness of EdVestors’ work and help us build our base of supporters. Events can be house parties, friendraisers, or lunch-and-learn events at your workplace. Other ideas are welcome, too!
