2018 National Forum on K-12 Philanthropy

Host Organization: The Philanthropy Roundtable


The Philanthropy Roundtable’s 2018 National Forum on K-12 Philanthropy will take place in Memphis, Tennessee at the Peabody on March 6-7.

Known for blues and barbecue, Memphis is also home to one of the nation’s most ambitious K-12 education improvements. Fueled by a collaborative philanthropic community that has encouraged bold governance models and school turnarounds, the city has also become a hotspot for dynamic teacher and leader talent, parent engagement, and high quality school models. Join fellow donors from across the country to examine lessons from Tennessee, and discuss key investment opportunities and emerging K-12 trends.

Highlights include:

• Schools and More: See Memphis’ unique blend of charter, district, and faith-based schools, and tour a renovated warehouse spurring collaboration among foundations, talent organizations, and K-12 entrepreneurs.

• Special Discussion: Take a private tour of the National Civil Rights Museum and explore how K-12 philanthropy can advance equity, opportunity, and excellence.

• An Insider’s Perspective: Hear from local leaders how they turned around school quality in Shelby County, and examine what it will take to build upon and sustain the growth.

More information about event content, speakers, and school site visits coming soon!
