“The DC Public Education Fund has made it easy for everyone — national foundations, local foundations, private citizens — to support innovations that benefit our public school students. The Fund’s impact is huge and reverses a decade during which there was no reliable way to invest directly in reform of the public schools.”

- Katherine Bradley, President, CityBridge Foundation
