Education, $17 million: grants were made to increase school readiness through early care and education, improve teacher professional development and expand parental engagement in public education. Early education grantmaking reflects a multi-year effort to improve access to high quality preschool education for families in historically underserved communities. The los angeles scholarship investment fund supported programs that combine multi-year scholarships with additional support that's proven to help students graduate.
