Strategic Investment Priorities

The State Charter Schools Foundation of Georgia (SCSF) seeks to leverage resources from private and public charitable sources to help state charter schools launch, build capacity, and grow through a comprehensive approach that reflects the needs of the schools and the broader ecosystem in Georgia.

  • Presenting and promoting accurate and complete information to demonstrate the value of state charter schools for Georgia's families.
  • Raising funds and resources for state charter schools in Georgia.
  • Offering grant funds to support innovative initiatives at state charter schools.
  • Providing capacity building support for state charter schools.
  • Addressing state charter schools' facility needs to support safe, functional facilities.
