Approach

In order to reduce the education gap, The Chris and Carrie Shumway Foundation identifies and supports programs that improve K-12 public education in underserved communities. The Chris and Carrie Shumway Foundation partners with organizations and providers that offer innovative programs and services that improve student achievement and also promote successful teachers and leaders. We look to actively engage with our philanthropic partners to enable their success and encourage the development of replicable, sustainable models.

The Chris and Carrie Shumway Foundation also partners with organizations that seek to remove barriers to critical educational reform efforts and the delivery of high-quality education.

The Chris and Carrie Shumway Foundation also makes targeted investments in organizations outside education that seek to create lasting positive impact in a variety of areas including self-empowerment and social services.
