There has always been a close relationship between where you live and the quality of your education. And, we know from research that access to quality education has a direct effect on long-term life opportunities. This just doesn’t feel fair. Everyone should have access to great schools that support their children’s needs and interests.

Vela Education Fund
VELA is a national nonprofit fund that launched in 2020. VELA invests in everyday entrepreneurs – students, parents, educators, and community leaders – who are envisioning new approaches that meet learners’ and families’ needs. These models include homeschool co-ops, microschools, after-school programs, and much, much more. VELA does not dictate solutions to its grantees. Instead, VELA trusts grantees to identify what their communities need and how they can best meet those needs.
