Education Impact

Ohio's grantmakers invest more dollars in education than any other funding interest. That's why Philanthropy Ohio launched its education initiative in 2005 -- to help members become more effective education grantmakers by better understanding public education in the state. See which foundations are involved in this education reform work.
