Working with Partners

The EEF aims to invest more than £200 million finding out the most effective ways to improve the attainment of disadvantaged children.

£125m of this will come from the founding grant awarded by the Department for Education in 2011, with further investment income generated while this grant is spent down. We aim to raise a minimum of £40m by partnering with other organisations who share our commitment to offering the best possible educational opportunities to children from low-income backgrounds.

The EEF is, therefore, actively looking to work with ambitious and strategic funding partners – including other trusts and foundations, corporate donors, and individual philanthropists – to increase the number and level of grants that can be awarded
