Please note that while we are affiliated with Stanford University’s Graduate School of Education, we receive no direct funding from Stanford and the education reform efforts that we promote are often overlooked by common funding mechanisms such as foundation grants. Nearly 50% of our operating budget is met through individual donations, and as such, we are extremely grateful for this support.
