2015 OPERATIONS ￼
In our first fiscal year, EdBuild generated $1.9 million in accrued revenue. In calendar year 2015, EdBuild generated $2.4 million.
EdBuild officially constituted our first governing board, consisting of seven experts in non profit governance, education reform, state and municipal finance, and communications.
EdBuild doubled our staff and hired skilled experts from multiple fields to engage in our effort to transform school funding.
"In just one year, the media EdBuild's generated has not only shined a new bright light on the inequities of our funding system, but become the trusted source on school finance issues with the national press corps."
- Hari Sevugan, DNC National Press Secretary, 2009-2011
“We view EdBuild’s work, particularly on the issues around funding education, as critical to the performance of our education system. EdBuild provides useful and in-depth analysis of complex data, serving as a primary resource for anyone seeking improvements in education financing or those tackling major systems and policy changes. We are proud to be an early supporter of EdBuild and look forward to seeing their work progress and evolve in the years to come.”
–D. Ben Benoit, Executive Director, The PCLB Foundation
“In a short period of time, EdBuild has emerged as one of the most promising education policy organizations in the field. They are filling a unique niche in the sector, offering research-based policy solutions tailored to the specific and unique characteristics of individual states and cities. I have no doubt we’ll continue to see a number of important contributions from EdBuild in the coming years.”
-Beth Bray, Program Officer, The Walton Family Foundation
