Grant uses


Our strategic priorities include educational opportunities and expanded learning initiatives in the 10-county metropolitan Atlanta region, specifically:

  • Early Learning
    • Our vision in Early Learning is to ensure that children will be successful in kindergarten and beyond. We support high-quality, center-based child development programs that provide full-day, year-round care in metro Atlanta to families in need.
    • We aim to:
      • Enhance the quality of early childhood education programs for working, low-income families
      • Increase access to and enrollment in early childhood education for children of underserved populations in need
      • Advance centers’ organizational capabilities and sustainability by making select investments in capacity and infrastructure.
  • K-12 Education
    • Our vision in K-12 Education is to positively impact the academic success of K-12 students in metropolitan Atlanta. We partner with high-performing independent schools and large-scale organizations working within public school systems.
    • We direct our funding in two distinct areas:
      • GoSTEAM
      • Afterschool and Summer Academic Programs
  • A Stronger Atlanta
    • The Goizueta Foundation studies and considers participation in local efforts that help make Atlanta an exceptional place to live, learn and do business, and have a broad and long-lasting impact.

We believe that challenging organizations to think about education in innovative, strategic ways is part of the secret formula to creating life-changing opportunities for individuals and long-term benefits for the communities in which they live and serve.
