Our grants and impact are made possible by the deeply-rooted relationships we have with dynamic organizations, public sector agencies, businesses, and individuals. Our support is more than just financial. As we collaborate in multiple ways directly with a partner – learning together and advancing shared goals – we bring organizations together to develop synergies. The experience, knowledge, passion and friendship of these collaborators empower us to better support and invest in their ideas because, quite simply, we believe in them.

The Illumination Fund was one of the earliest leadership supporters of Be The Change, a national organization that creates issue-based campaigns driven by cross-partisan coalitions to inspire positive societal change.
Teachers College, Columbia University – the oldest, largest, and most comprehensive graduate school of education in the US – has not only had a major global impact on educational practice, it is a champion of educational equity and deeply embedded in its local community of Morningside Heights and adjacent Harlem.
