Making educational opportunities more equitable across the South

It takes all of us to create change. Since 1867, the Southern Education Foundation has been a leader in improving education in the South, especially for Black students, other students of color, and students living in low-income families. Your contributions support our research and data, state and federal policy and advocacy, leadership development programs, and promising innovations in education.
