The California Education Policy Fund
A Sponsored Project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors
The California Education Policy Fund (CEPF) is intended to support a broad, balanced ecosystem of nonprofit organizations working on education policy in California.
CEPF was established in 2011 with a leadership gift from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. With annual grantmaking levels of approximately $3.0 million, CEPF continues to build on the Hewlett Foundation’s long-term leadership and deep commitment to education in California by supporting nonprofit organizations with strong track records and well-developed plans to reform state policy in ways that will boost student achievement and college success, especially for disadvantaged students.
Currently, CEPF is focused on supporting organizations working to advance policy and practice reform to promote Deeper Learning, the set of higher-order skills that K-12 students will need to succeed in twenty-first-century work and civic life.
