Please join us for a lively exchange and discussion on the Funders' Collaborative for High-Quality School Programs, hosted by the Newark Trust for Education, in partnership with the Education Subcommittee of the Newark Funders Affinity Group.

The Funder's Collaborative for High-Quality School Options represents a unique collaboration of local and regional funders who are committed to ensuring that all Newark students have access to high-quality school options that will put them on a path to college readiness.

Since its inception in 2011, the Collaborative has allocated over $2.5 million in support of a variety of innovative schools and programs across the district. Beyond being a benefit to those schools receiving funding, the Collaborative establishes a vehicle and framework that aligns, focuses, and coordinates resources on behalf of district reform strategies. In partnership with the Governance Committee of the Education Subcommittee of the Newark Funders’ Group of the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers, the Newark Trust for Education is responsible for managing the Funders’ Collaborative for High-Quality School Options.

This has been a very exciting year for schools under the Collaborative. We invite you to join us to hear directly from Newark Public School principals, as they engage in a robust discussion around the benefits of this program and offer insight into the challenges they face in their schools.

Cost: Free for CNJG Members/$35 for Non Member Grantmakers
