Impact Team Strategy

Charter School Growth Fund
1 min readDec 7, 2015


The Charter School Growth Fund (CSGF) is launching its third fund and, as part of this new effort, we are expanding the supports and services that we provide to charter school networks in our portfolio.

The networks that we support represent some of the highest-performing public school systems in the country. Together, these networks serve more than 250,000 students. We expect that within the next decade, our portfolio will serve over 1,000,000 students. As the nation’s best charter networks grow into world-class organizations, they will need to build new capacity and solve longstanding challenges in public education.

We have created an Impact Team to provide dedicated support to our portfolio members. Led by Eric Thomas, the team will invest $15 million over 5 years in solutions that help charter networks get better faster. The Impact Team will also provide direct services such as running convenings for C-Level leaders and senior directors, curating best practices, benchmarking data, and coordinating collaboration between charter networks on important projects.
