Funders

The HundrED Education Funders Collection is a selection of inspiring education funders who share our passion to help prepare children to flourish in life, no matter what happens. The Collection features information on funders’ investment themes, target regions, and support structures in order to help our innovators find investment partners that can help them scale their impact.


If you are interested in being featured in the Funder’s Collection and gain access to HundrED’s global network of education forerunners, submit your request here:

How do we decide who is featured in the Funder’s Collection?

At HundrED, our mission is to help every child flourish in life, no matter what happens. We only select innovations and funders that are aligned with that mission.

As we add to our Funders Collection, we are looking for funders that have an interest in driving change over just looking for financial returns, and we generally prefer those that help their beneficiaries in more ways than just providing capital. We are only considering nonprofit and for-profit organisations who have been investing in K-12 education for at least one year.

If you want to be included, please provide a short description of your organisation, your funding philosophy, your funding model (investments, grants, etc.), your target regions or themes, and your support structures.

Do you want to be included or do you have questions? Get in touch with our Project Manager, Romayne Javangwe at funders@hundred.org.
