EdVestors is a dynamic school change organization focused on accelerating substantive improvement in urban schools. Since 2002, we have raised and directed over $18 million in private donations for urban school improvement efforts through the School Solutions Seed Fund, Arts Expansion Initiative, Improving Schools Initiative and School on the Move Prize. Targeted primarily in Boston, funded initiatives are carefully monitored for results and the most effective are distinguished for expansion and replication. Today, EdVestors employs three levers to drive change in urban schools: strategic philanthropic investment, education expertise, and engaged implementation support.
We are thrilled to be partnering with the John Hancock Nonprofit Parner Program to raise funds for EdVestors' work through the 2015 Boston Marathon. Funds raised will help drive improved outcomes for all of Boston's students.
