Program areas at City Fund

Today, our educational system works well for far too few children in the united states, especially minority and low-income children. This failure not only deprives millions of children of a legitimate pathway to pursue gainful employment and a purpose-filled life, but it is also a threat to the wellbeing of our nation.to address these systemic challenges, the City Fund invests in and supports city-based nonprofit organizations dedicated to increasing the number of high-quality public schools in their cities and otherwise improving outcomes for low-income and disadvantaged children. The City Fund supports nonprofits that share its mission in three core ways: advising; funding; and convening.advising: the City Fund provides advising and coaching support to the leaders of city-based nonprofit organizations aiming to improve public school outcomes. The City Fund focuses its advising efforts on city-based non-profit organizations that are playing a key leadership role investing in the creation of new, high-quality public schools, funding and developing educator talent pipelines, engaging their community, and supporting education policy improvements.funding: the City Fund provides funding to city-based nonprofit organizations focused on improving public schools. Through this grantmaking, the City Fund makes strategic investments in the most effective, high-impact, or promising organizations working on the development and growth of high-quality public schools and affiliated educational programming for disadvantaged children.convening: the City Fund also convenes city-based education nonprofit leaders and other key stakeholders in communities of practice to facilitate peer-to-peer learning. These events bring nonprofit leaders, funders, and other stakeholders together to learn about different approaches to improving public education. The convenings consist of conferences, working group meetings, and other in-person meetings across the country. The purpose of all convenings is to unite those working to improve outcomes for low-income and other disadvantaged children in order to share best practices and new insights.
