Reimagining the Role of Philanthropy in Education


The most effective solutions to systemic challenges in education will come from leaders and organizations grounded in the communities they serve — yet national philanthropy often looks for scalable solutions that work across contexts. This meet-up, hosted by New Profit and the Gates Foundation with special guests, is a space for honest dialogue about how funders and social entrepreneurs can co-design solutions, shift resources and practices, and advance a new era of equity and shared power.
