Public Education Network (PEN) is a national association of local education funds (LEFs) and individuals working to advance public school reform in low-income communities across our country. PEN seeks to build public demand and mobilize resources for quality public education for all children through a theory of action that focuses on the importance of public engagement in school reform. PEN believes community engagement is the missing ingredient in school reform, and that the level of public involvement ultimately determines the quality of education provided by public schools.

SchoolGrants.org launched in August 1999. It was unique at the time of its creation and remains unique today in that it offers a vast array of information to elementary and secondary school grant seekers at no cost. SchoolGrants was created when it became apparent that there were no sites like it for people from small, financially-strapped school districts. SchoolGrants had access at that time to expensive grant publications that smaller districts were unlikely to be able to afford.
