The Rogers Family Foundation’s big goal is to dramatically increase student learning and achievement to ensure that Oakland students graduate prepared to succeed in life, college and career.  We believe that a strategic blend of grants and partnerships has the potential to producesignificant gains in Oakland student achievement and school outcomes.

The Rogers Family Foundation (RFF) has five investment priorities – quality schools, human capital, literacy, technology & innovation, and community reform voice.

RFF emphasizes leadership as a key criterion in all grant making decisions. We support organizations that are achieving excellent results and we strive to balance our grantee partners’ immediate needs for operating support with strategic investments that have the potential to dramatically improve the Oakland educational system.  We value collaboration among our grantee partners and we prioritize relationship-building and partnerships with other funders to leverage our resources.

The Rogers Family Foundation has helped to incubate and facilitate several creative collaboratives and organizations having significant impact in Oakland.
