Closing the achievement gap – Strategic funding attracts CO-INVESTMENT

An object of every education investment that the Annie E. Casey Foundation makes is to attract co-investment in promising and evidence-based programs and policies. This publication provides an in-depth look at Casey’s strategic early investment in one inNovative but as yet unproved activity – Indianapolis Mayor Bart Peterson’s Charter Initiative — and stories about the Foundation’s education grants to two other organizations and the co-investments these grants attracted.

This article forms part of Casey’s Closing the Achievement Gap Series, a series of stories, results, and lessons learned from seven years of education investing.
