Driving Equity through STEM Philanthropy
Creating Equity in STEM Opportunities
STEM Funders Network (SFN) is leading a movement to transform the STEM philanthropic ecosystem by creating greater diversity, equity, inclusion, and access to STEM learning opportunities across the continuum for historically marginalized groups. Our members’ strategic partnerships and investments into more equitable STEM programs and activities—from cradle to career—are critical in solving this important societal issue.
Helping STEM Funders
In the past, the philanthropy ecosystem has perpetuated the status quo by funding organizations, programs, and opportunities without much consideration for or prioritization of the diversity, equity, inclusion, and access impacts of their grantmaking investments. We work with leading STEM philanthropic institutions in innovative ways to critically examine their grantmaking practices and shift their considerable funding influence to more equitable investments in STEM learning experiences and workforce development.
Who We Serve
STEM Funders Network works with a diverse mix of private, family, community, and corporate foundations that are driving STEM philanthropic investment in the United States. We also work with policymakers, nonprofits, grantees, and other organizations and individuals to help eliminate existing racial and socio-economic barriers to STEM learning experiences and workforce development. Our goal is to influence greater STEM access for underserved and under-resourced communities.
