In 2013, Californians engaged in the arts, prepared for college and career success, and participated in public decisions that affected their lives.
We celebrated six inspiring California leaders implementing creative and effective solutions to critical California issues.
Eighty-six grantee partners experimented with new arts engagement opportunities for Californians.
And we learned about their plans and risks.
Linked Learning students completed 6.6 more credits in 10th grade, compared to other, similar students.
And we were informed by the experiences of students, parents, teacher and partners.
The Future of California Elections improved our elections system to increase voter participation.
It made recommendations to the Presidential Commission on Election Administration.
And we discovered that public officials and civic organization leaders have more in common in their views of public engagement than you might assume.
At the Foundation, we elected a new board chair.
We moved to a new office.
And announced the departure of our president after 10 years.
Our assets and grantmaking continue to grow.
And our chief investment officer and treasurer explained why.
But most of all, we celebrated our grantees. None of this happens without them.
