Investment Sites

The foundation focuses on 16 investment sites throughout the United States that serve high concentrations of low-income families and don’t offer high-performing schools to all their students.  They include:

  • Albany
  • Atlanta
  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Denver
  • Detroit
  • Harlem, N.Y.
  • Indianapolis
  • Los Angeles
  • Memphis
  • Milwaukee

  • New Orleans
  • Newark, N.J.
  • Phoenix
  • Washington, D.C.

In many of the 16 investment sites where there is a high concentration of publicly funded educational options, students enrolled in public charter and private schools with the support of public scholarships are outperforming their peers.
