Support the Next Generation of Pioneers

No one knows better than our Alumni the potential of an EP experience and the value of our network. There is no EP without our Alumni. And if you can’t imagine your life and your career without EP, we hope that you will lean into supporting our work!

Please consider joining the Onward Club with an ongoing gift that will sustain our work into the future. When you give now, your gift will be matched 1:1 by a generous donor*!

  • For $50 per month, you collectively with 6 EP Alums giving at the same level can support the programming and leadership development for a Impact Fellowship cohort

  • For $25 per month, you collectively with 8 EP Alums giving at the same level can support the programming and leadership development for a Summer Fellowship cohort

  • Give $15 per month, or the cost of 2 coffees, in honor of EP’s 15th anniversary

There is so much more that we can accomplish together  but none of it will happen without the support of the people who know us best: all of you. Thank you.

Thank you for your commitment to each other, the EP network, and the power and potential of future Fellows.


Recognizing and celebrating EP Alumni for their financial support of Education Pioneers’ vision for a more equitable education system via leaders and managers who have the talent to transform.

Consistent giving to Education Pioneers is crucial. As one of the only Fellowship programs focusing on leaders and managers outside of the classroom operating at our scale and scope, EP relies on the annual generosity of its supporters to help fund our Fellowship programs, explore new opportunities to impact the education sector, and attract transformational talent—all necessary components for the future of Education Pioneers.

The Onward Club recognizes and celebrates Alumni who are sustaining supporters of Education Pioneers. These generous individuals understand that recurring monthly and annual investments, no matter the size, helps EP transform the education sector.

Giving on an ongoing basis (monthly or annually) is an especially convenient and consistent way to ensure future Fellows have a pathway to applying their skills in the education sector. More specifically, a gift each month can make a significant difference over the course of a year. You can plan your philanthropy, and EP can count on your ongoing support.

Members include EP Alums:

  • Who are monthly recurring supporters ($15 or more), or
  • Who are annual recurring supporters ($180 or more), or
  • Who give annually at the $1,000 level or above, or


  • Recognition in online supporter list and other materials
  • Gift-impact communications from EP leadership
  • Invitations to special events like conversations with EP organizational leaders, local events, etc.
