Initiatives / Racial Equity Seed Fund / Grants

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 recruited 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.

There are currently no grant opportunities open at this time.
