All children deserve a high-quality education, but widening social and economic disparities leave too many kids without essential learning experiences, particularly children of color and children from low-income households. We aim to close opportunity gaps in education by engaging families. Our funding supports proven home-visiting programs for caregivers and kids, nurtures parent leadership within schools and communities, and brings family priorities to the policy-making table.

We are particularly focused on Washington and Michigan, two states with great potential to model clean-energy solutions.

We are building infrastructure and organizing muscle throughout Washington, encouraging widespread participation in decisions that impact communities. Our grants help to cultivate strong candidates, strengthen communications with voters, support collaboration, and advance the priorities of our state’s multicultural rural communities.
