Aligned Funders

The Road Map Project 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 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 grant-making efforts to Road Map Project goals. Some funders participate in a pooled fund that supports the implementation of Road Map Project efforts in the region. Participation in the Rapid Resource Fund is open to all members of the Aligned Funders group, but is not required.
