The Marcus Foster Education Fund is a compassionate, collaborative organization seeking to help realize transformative educational equity for the Oakland community. We are a collection of servant leaders committed to innovation and accountability to improving the supports, rigor, expectations and outcomes of high academic achievement among the most disenfranchised students. Our work is achieved through serving as a backbone organization to critical initiatives targeting the Oakland schools and the Bay Area’s education community. To that end, our goal is systemic collective impacts through convening, data collection, policy and advocacy, intervention design, implementation oversight and evaluation for student improvements at scale. We are committed to urging real, sustained change and raising and investing the resources for the Oakland community to get there.
