RedefinED Atlanta Awards $315,000 in Grants to Five Community Organizations Supporting APS Students, Schools and Staff

redefinED atlanta, a nonprofit dedicated to ensuring that every student in Atlanta has the opportunity to attend a great public school, today announced that it is awarding $315,000 to five Atlanta-based organizations that are supporting the education needs of Black, Latinx and other under-resourced students and families in Metro Atlanta. The five organizations are: EdConnect, Fathers Incorporated, Goodie Nation, Next Generation Men & Women, and TeachX.

“We believe that the communities most impacted by inequity in Atlanta Public Schools know what they need most to address their challenges and create lasting change,” said Ed Chang, executive director of redefinED atlanta. “The five organizations we’ve granted are engaged in neighborhoods across the city and metro Atlanta and currently doing the critical work of filling in education gaps in schools and communities, so we know that this funding will only deepen their impact.”
