EdSurge is a nonprofit newsroom reporting on the powerful forces, fascinating people and innovative practices shaping teaching and learning. To support this mission, we accept grants from philanthropic organizations that are committed to our editorial independence.

Over the years, philanthropic funding has supported scoped research and journalism projects as well as newsroom operations. Our grants have allowed us to dive more deeply into specific topics, explore new developments and to work with (and learn from) countless educators, education leaders and researchers in the field.

When philanthropists fund our work, they do so with a commitment to help us preserve our editorial independence. Accepting financial support does not mean we endorse funders or their products, services or opinions.

EdSurge reporters have won journalism fellowships to support their work. See those listed on our awards page here.

We are committed to being transparent around our funding, and we disclose any potential or perceived conflicts of interest. See our ethics policies and practices here.
