Redefining what’s possible

We support a portfolio of the nation’s leading public charter school networks. These organizations run many of the top schools in their cities and states, and together, they are reshaping the nation’s approach to education.

Emerging CMO Fund

We launched the Emerging CMO Fund in 2013 to significantly expand the impact of charter schools led by people who share the backgrounds of the students and families they serve. Through this fund, we provide charter networks led by people of color with funding, resources, and mentorship as they open more schools. Our hope is that many of these leaders will eventually join our National Fund as they continue to expand.
