The 1954 Project
From The 1954 Project
The 1954 Project is an education philanthropy initiative for diverse Black leaders, led by the Black community in partnership with those who share our values.
The 1954 Project identifies established leaders of nonprofit organizations in the education sector and selects at least five Luminaries each year. The Luminaries receive transformational $1 million grants along with professional supports and membership in an unparalleled community of their peers.
The 1954 Project's flexible financial commitment and suite of supports allows leaders to maintain their focus on driving innovation, improving student outcomes, and creating lasting systemic change.
