In response to the COVID-19 health crisis, the Education Funders Group meeting scheduled for May 5 will focus on sharing information and updates, including impacts on the education sector and ways philanthropy is responding. We invite you to hear from EFG committee members and education funder colleagues who will share the latest updates from districts and schools in LA County and beyond. We’ll learn about innovative ways in which small districts are responding during school closures, updates on local funds and the impact on charter schools.

The remainder of the peer-to-peer web-conference call will also provide an opportunity to come together to exchange information and discuss the unique challenges and opportunities of working in philanthropy as an education funder during this challenging time.
