Aligned Funders

The Aligned Funders group is open to all public and private funders that fund education efforts in the Road Map Project Region.  The Aligned Funders group meets every other month to discuss work happening across the region to advance educational outcomes in South King County and South Seattle. A majority of the participants fund projects in the region and many have strategically aligned their educational grantmaking efforts to the Road Map Project goals. In some cases, funders have started to experiment with ways to increase the impact of their individual giving by acting collectively.
