How much money will be spent?

This is a significant effort on behalf of the students of Los Angeles, with generous donations from a variety of foundations and individuals committed to improving educational opportunities for those who need it most. Great Public Schools Now will invest in a number of ways to support the opening of new high-quality public schools in neighborhoods where students aren’t getting the kind of education they deserve.

We are hopeful that we can raise money to help organizations that can help provide Los Angeles K-12 students with a high-quality education. We believe targeted, strategic investments of any amount can result in systemic, positive change.
