      Organization

       

      The Broad Foundation's mission is to dramatically improve K-12 urban public education through better governance, management, and labor relations.

       

      Increasingly concerned for the quality of elementary and secondary public education in America, particularly within large urban school districts, Eli Broad and his family established The Broad Foundation in 1999 to focus on K-12 educational issues. The family’s initial funding commitment of $100 million was later increased to over $400 million. The Foundation is based in the Westwood neighborhood of Los Angeles and currently has 14 full-time employees.  Please visit www.broadfoundation.org to learn more about the foundation’s investments.
