We strive to help our charter schools and networks collectively grow to serve one million students within the next decade. In doing so, we believe these organizations will transform the lives of the students they serve and prove what is possible in public education.
CSGF has supported a portfolio of the nation’s leading public charter school networks since 2005. We seek to scale the impact of non-profit networks that give students from low-income backgrounds and students of color access to significantly better schools.
To date, we have made direct investments in more than 200 non-profit charter school networks to help grow and scale over 1,200 high-performing schools that serve 585,000 students across 34 states, DC, and Puerto Rico. We are committed to helping entrepreneurial leaders – whether they are replicating their charter school for the first time or leading a network that serves more than 10,000 students – successfully navigate the challenges of growth. More than 70% of the networks that we have helped to scale over the past 15 years served less than 1,000 students when we first supported them.
