ABOUT CHARTER SCHOOL GROWTH FUND

The Charter School Growth Fund (CSGF) is a philanthropic fund dedicated to identifying the nation’s best public charter schools, funding their expansion, and helping to increase their impact. Our “portfolio” of charter school networks includes 50+ organizations that operate 500+ schools and serve more than 250,000 students. We operate with the same strategies, discipline, and focus as a venture capital firm by awarding multi-year grants and low-interest loans to talented education entrepreneurs building networks of high-quality charter schools that enroll traditionally underserved students. We will embark on a third national fund in 2016, through which we seek to double the number of students served by helping launch 600 new great public charter schools by 2020. Ultimately, we think our portfolio can grow to serve ~1,000,000 students within a decade.
