Building Philanthropy for a Better Florida

About EAG

Florida Philanthropic Network's Education Affinity Group (EAG) is comprised of FPN members who share an interest in supporting education issues, organizations and needs in Florida. EAG offers Florida's education funders a space to learn from each other, work together to improve the state's education outcomes and be a voice for Florida philanthropy on key education policy issues. 

EAG Guiding Statement

The EAG will support a culture of high expectations for all students, in and out of school, from early childhood to postsecondary education, leading to career success.

ENGAGE is a toolkit designed for education funders throughout Florida to better understand Florida Standards implementation and discover new ways to support implementation in their grantmaking. The toolkit is broken up into five modules: EAG background, the current situation, needs at the district level, philanthropy’s role and examples of effective district partnerships.
