Your Gift Makes a Difference

ERS’ mission is to transform how school systems use resources (people, time, and money) so that every school prepares every child for tomorrow, no matter their race or income. We work closely with a community of partners – leaders in school systems and state agencies, peer non-profits who do research or provide technical assistance, and foundations that are committed to advancing educational equity and excellence.

We welcome your support in this mission. Your donation will enable us to work with more and different types of school systems; to create more action-oriented publications and tools; and to allow our team members to innovate and improve our work.

Your tax-deductible contribution helps us ensure that students in this country don’t just beat the odds- together, we can change the odds so that every student can meet his or her potential.
