Our fundraising priorities

We work closely with other those who share our mission of tackling educational inequality. 

Since 2011, £37 million has been donated by a range of funders and individuals to help extend the reach of work the Education Endowment Foundation is funding.

We welcome your support. Donations can be made securely online here

Our mission

The EEF isn’t just a grant-funder, nor just a research organisation. What we are is a charity with a moral imperative: tackling educational inequality.

Ensuring children and young people with low socio-economic status have the best possible start in life.

We root our response to this challenge in the best available evidence. We direct our support where it is most needed and can make most difference.

"We are delighted to be working in partnership with EEF. These programmes represent to us the importance of rigorous evaluation where outcomes will be of primary importance. I am sure we can achieve more together than either organisation can achieve individually." - KPMG Foundation

We have one over-riding aim this year.

To support schools, nurseries and colleges respond to the disruption to teaching and learning caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

This means equipping teachers with high-quality evidence and resources. And making sure there is effective support for those children who need it most.

Our capacity to deliver this depends on achieving significant fundraising.

We invite your support so that, together, we can improve educational outcomes for all. And, in particular, for those young people from the most disadvantaged backgrounds.
