"One of the core principles behind EdVestors is that private philanthropy can provide the targeted resources to schools ready to step forward and be agents of change for kids. Our goal is to ensure that these changes and improvements spread across all of our schools, so that we move from having pockets of excellence to having pathways for all students to achieve lifelong learning and success. "
