The International Education Funders Group (IEFG) is a member-led learning and collaborating network for foundations, donor-advised funds, and other private grantmakers.

We focus on basic education in low- and middle-income countries, from early childhood up to secondary, formal and non-formal, youth skills and adult literacy. Much of our work contributes to achieving Sustainable Development Goal 4 and we aim for foundations’ grant-making, convening, and collaborating activities to have a marked positive impact on global basic education.

We are diverse – with around 100 member organizations from wide geographic, thematic and political angles. As such, we do not do advocacy, nor pitch or fund projects; but rather focus on ensuring our members keep up with developments and best practices in the field, better identifying our role in catalysing change in the short- and long-term, and in creating opportunities for members to network and learn from each other.

Please note IEFG is not a grantmaking institution – it is a learning and collaborating network.
