Grantmakers for Education’s Out-of-School Time Funder Network


The goal of the Out-of-School Time (OST) Funder Network is to increase access to high quality OST experiences for young people and build systemic supports to sustain the field. The network comprises diverse philanthropies from across the country who invest in OST. Its primary strategies include sharing knowledge and effective practices; forging collaborations among grantmakers; and building alliances with K-12 education reform, child development and well-being, and other aligned grantmaking communities.

​​Brenda McLaughlin of The Learning Agenda served as the OST Content Specialist, facilitating the work of the Network and providing content expertise.
