About us

NewSchools Venture Fund is a not-for-profit organization working to close the achievement gap by funding and supporting entrepreneurs who are creating innovative solutions to the problems in public education so that all children have the opportunity to succeed in college and beyond. Since our founding in 1998, NewSchools has invested $180 million in more than 40 nonprofit and for-profit educational organizations working to promote student achievement. Recognizing that neither private charity nor capital markets alone are enough to solve the problem of education inequality, we blend the best of both approaches to ensure an excellent education is available to every child. We actively share what we've learned through our investments, bring together educational leaders from across the country, and advocate for smart policies at the federal level.

NewSchools is a small organization of 25 people located in Oakland (where we are headquartered) and Boston, MA and Washington, DC.
