The Atlanta Reimagining and Innovating for Schools Everywhere (A.R.I.S.E.) Fund is a two-year $300,000 fund to drive community efforts to support the Atlanta Board of Education’s goal of increasing student literacy outcomes for Atlanta Public Schools students. The grant criteria, application, issue area of focus, and community of impact were developed and selected by community members participating in the inaugural A.R.I.S.E. Fellowship.

RedefinED atlanta prioritizes work that addresses the systems that have historically oppressed Black, Latinx, and under-resourced communities, anchoring our efforts in education. We know systemic racial inequities persist as significant barriers to a thriving Atlanta. We believe that community members’ knowledge, experiences, and strengths are essential in changing it for the better. We committed to adopting participatory grantmaking practices in our 2020-2025 strategic plan. The A.R.I.S.E. Fund is our inaugural participatory fund. A.R.I.S.E. fellows will determine grantee selection and funding amounts, informed by community stakeholders, including people from Atlanta Public Schools Douglass Cluster.
