Report: Philanthropists, Community Partners Gave $25M For Hartford School Initiatives

Philanthropists, corporations and local agencies contributed $25 million to Hartford school initiatives in 2012-13, a $10 million jump from the previous school year, according to a district report released this week. The report from the school system’s Office of Institutional Advancement attributed much of the increase to a $5 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to expand Hartford’s relationship with charter schools. That three-year grant was announced in December 2012.
