Education Forward DC

Education Forward DC (Ed Forward DC) is a nonprofit organization founded in 2016 in Washington, DC. Guided by our core values, we work to advance quality and equity in public schools to ensure that every DC student gets a great education. Our goal over the next five years is that schools emerge from the disruptions of the COVID-19 pandemic to provide a reimagined experience for students that meets their full academic, social, and emotional needs. Specifically, we aim to double the proportion of schools providing high-quality, high-equity experiences for students.   

Ed Forward DC accelerates the work of local leaders by aggregating and disseminating local and national philanthropic dollars to local grantees who are committed to transformational change. We take an active role with each grantee in our portfolio to help them create sustainable organizations that generate breakthrough results for the students they serve.
