The EEF aims to invest more than £200 million within 15 years, from 2011 to 2026, finding out the most effective ways to improve the attainment of disadvantaged children.

£125m of this will come from the founding grant awarded by the Department for Education, with further investment income generated while this grant is spent down. We aim to raise a minimum of £40m by partnering with other organisations who share our commitment to offering the best possible educational opportunities to children and young people aged 3-18 from low-income backgrounds.

The EEF is, therefore, actively looking to work with ambitious and strategic funding partners – including other trusts and foundations, corporate donors, and individual philanthropists – to increase the number and level of grants that can be awarded.
