The Racial Equity Seed Fund is accepting applications. Apply before October 13!

Initiatives / Racial Equity Seed Fund / Grants


Race cannot continue to predict educational outcomes for our students in Boston. Through grantmaking and working in partnership with students, families, schools, community organizations, Boston Public Schools, and Boston University we aim to  build the capacity of Boston Public Schools to understand, implement, and shape conditions that disrupt and dismantle racial inequities. 

EdVestors is recruiting 6 BPS schools for a 2-year networked improvement community focused on equitable literacy. Schools will receive up to $10,000 this year (with potential for future funding) as well as support from EdVestors, BPS, Boston University, and each other. To learn more, please read our information deck. To apply, please:

  1. Fill out a short interest form.
  2. Select a time on Calendly (link in interest form) to talk with us as part of your application.

Applications are rolling until October 13th, 2023.
