Schott Black Male Initiative
Schott seeks to launch a five-year, multi-million dollar Opportunity To Learn philanthropic strategy to increase resource accountability and ensure that race is no longer a significant predictor of educational resource access or outcomes. The Schott Foundation will use its advocacy management firm philanthropic model to manage a grantmaking strategy to build the public will to increase the number of states that adopt an “Opportunity To Learn” reform framework and create a federal right to an Opportunity To Learn.

Over the last 25 years, the social, educational and economic outcomes for Black males have been more systemically devastating than the outcomes for any other racial or ethnic group or gender. Schott began the Black Boys Initiative in 2003 with the initial goal of creating a movement to improve the educational experiences of black boys to ensure that they graduate from high school with the confidence to become successful members of society.

Girls' Equity Grant Program  
These grants, targeted at local and state organizations in both New York and Massachusetts, are supporting efforts to ensure that female students of color have a fair and substantive opportunity to learn. In the past eight years, Schott has engaged in a significant body of work on the crisis facing Black males. With these grants, Schott is complementing that work and continuing to strengthen its gender equity efforts which it began more than a decade ago.
