"We've been with EdVestors now for two years and we've been fortunate to receive support through a number of grantmakers. The private investment has made all the difference in the types of services that we can provide for our students."
- Joel Stembridge, Former Headmaster of O'Bryant School of Math & Science

At EdVestors, expertise from staff and our Education Review Panel allows us to identify and shape promising strategies to close both the opportunity and achievement gaps for urban school children with a special focus on students in Boston's public schools.
We look for game-changing strategies with strong leadership and smart implementation plans and then we partner with education-minded donors to fund these efforts.
To ensure sound investment, EdVestors staff conducts rigorous due diligence of school-based and district applicants, collects outcomes metrics to evaluate progress of programs, and works closely with each grantee to ensure effective implementation. Our strategic approach includes close collaboration with school and District-level leaders with the goal of sharing best practices across schools and fostering the replication and expansion of the most effective initiatives.
