WHAT WE BELIEVE
Talent is ubiquitous, but unfortunately opportunities are not. Every individual should have an equal chance to participate in STEM activities across the learning continuum that will enhance their ability to succeed in a STEM career or other chosen path.
Driving Force for Positive Change
Our innovative efforts pave the way for new behaviors that support equity in and access to STEM opportunities from early childhood to early career, starting with funding organizations whose considerable influence can lead systemic transformation.
Eradicating Racial and Social Injustices
Our work is critical to eliminating the existing barriers and inequities that prohibit individuals from full participation in STEM learning experiences and workforce development that can improve their lives.
Transforming the Philanthropic Ecosystem
Embracing participatory grantmaking as a core funding strategy will significantly shift the ecosystem by allowing philanthropic institutions to truly understand the communities they serve and empower those most impacted by funding decisions to propose insights and solutions that are responsive to their needs.
Research-driven Initiatives for Measurable Impact
Initiatives and activities of the STEM Funders Network are informed by research and evaluated for effectiveness and impact to measure change.
