The International Education Funders Group

The International Education Funders Group (IEFG) is an affinity group for foundations and donor-advised funds that support basic education (including early childhood through secondary, vocational and non-formal education, but not tertiary education) in the Global South. The group focuses primarily on learning and networking, trying to collectively strengthen its members' work and knowledge of the field. It does not seek to directly influence education policy agendas and spaces, but rather helps private funders have a stronger voice and impact in education by improving their strategic analyses and thinking, informing and assisting their grantmaking, and providing opportunities for collective learning and action. To date, the IEFG has 75+ member grantmakers (foundations, donor-advised funds, corporate giving programs, and charities).
