Mission: Educate Our State is a grassroots, parent-led, statewide campaign uniting the voices of Californians in support of high-quality, K-12 public education and to demand real, systemic change. Educate Our State believes parents and community leaders can work together and agree on fundamental changes that put our children’s achievement and success first.
Approach: Full Circle Fund helped support Educate Our State’s transition to a non-profit with paid staff. This inflection point is an ideal moment for Full Circle to engage Educate Our State to secure stable, multi-year funding, help guide the transition, and increase capacity and influence. Successful completion of this project will greatly enhance the organization’s scale, sustainability and outreach potential.
Educate Our State’s end goal is to grow membership to 100,000 through cultivating best practices and infrastructure in building chapter development and writing scripts to develop new PSA’s.
Impact: We created a new teacher evaluation system to promote teachers’ professional development and ensure high-quality teaching.
