Education Funders Group Meeting
March 22 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amFree
SCG’s Education Funders Group invites you to join us for a conversation with Shital Shah, Senior Advisor of Strategic Partnerships, Department of Education (DOE). Shital leads partnership management, including relationships with the private sector and philanthropic organizations, ensuring alignment with the Secretary’s priorities. She will provide an update on federal priorities and plans for student loan forgiveness. Her comments will also focus on how the DOE is partnering with foundations nationwide as well as with statewide and local funders. Opportunities to support these efforts will be highlighted.
In addition, this convening will cover the current focus areas of the Education Funders Group and allow time for participants to learn from one another about trends and emerging issues in the field. Please come with ideas for a deeper dive!
The Education Funders Group brings philanthropic funders together quarterly to learn about issues, trends, and needs in the field of education to inform individual and collective grantmaking. Over the years, the group has explored a variety of topics, including early childhood education, after-school programming, parent engagement, blended learning, linked learning, STEM, implementation of the common core, and college access/college success.
