The Charter School Growth Fund (CSGF) is a leading nonprofit venture philanthropy fund dedicated to identifying the nation’s best public charter schools, funding their expansion, and helping to increase their impact. Our portfolio includes 60+ charter school networks that operate 870+ schools and serve more than 370,000 students in 28 states.

Ultimately, we think our portfolio can grow to serve ~1,000,000 students.
