Education Pioneers Recognized as Top Nonprofit in Bay Area and Washington, D.C.

In 2013, Education Pioneers celebrates our 10 year anniversary. We are incredibly proud of the accomplishments of our Fellows and Partners over the years, and 2012 was no exception.

In December, Philanthropedia ranked EP fourth out of 162 education nonprofits making a significant impact on education in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Over two months, Philanthropedia surveyed 99 experts working in education in the Bay Area, with an average of 19 years of work experience in the field, to identify the organizations that were making the biggest positive impact on a local level.

According to Philanthropedia, “Education Pioneers is one of the only organizations focused directly on building the pipeline of leadership and management talent for positions outside the classroom. With this focus, Education Pioneers is an important and direct talent pipeline into critical executive leadership positions.”

Education Pioneers was also recognized for our work in Washington, D.C. in 2012. The Washington City Paper partnered with the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington to present the top 74 nonprofits in the D.C. metro area, and EP was recognized under the education category along with 14 other organizations.

Barbara Harman, President and Editor of the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington, said, “Charities were selected for excellence, cost-effectiveness, and impact. These are certainly among the best community-based nonprofits in the Washington region.”
