STEM Funders Network (SFN) believes every learner from cradle to postsecondary should have an equitable opportunity to engage in high quality in-school and out-of-school STEM learning experiences. Because talent is ubiquitous; but opportunities are not.  

STEM Funders Network members are a diverse mix of private, family, community, and corporate foundations working together to increase the knowledge and expertise of grantmakers investing in STEM, leveraging their collective resources to positively influence the philanthropic industry, and collaborating on high impact projects to create collective impact. 

Led by the Executive Steering Committee, members come together collectively to identify and pursue overarching strategies, policies, and opportunities that can make a holistic impact on the STEM equity ecosystem. Initiatives represent opportunities that reflect multifunder support over the past few years and leverage resources, ideas, and leadership. Each member makes their own decision on whether to collaborate with other members on an initiative and how they can collectively support an initiative.
