The Philadelphia Academy of School Leaders is grateful to the funders who generously contribute to our mission of developing highly effective leaders. We could not be successful without their continued support and belief in our work.

Neubauer Family Foundation

The Neubauer Family Foundation is the founding and primary supporter of the Philadelphia Academy of School Leaders. The Neubauer family is committed to improving education in Philadelphia and believes that school leaders are best poised to make that happen. “All of Philadelphia’s schoolchildren deserve a first-rate education regardless of neighborhood,” explained Joseph Neubauer. “I know — we all know — that there are no first-rate schools without first-rate leaders.  That’s why I’m so passionate about this initiative.” Learn more about the Neubauer Family Foundation’s role in founding School Leaders here.

William Penn Foundation

The Philadelphia Academy of School Leaders is thrilled to have received a grant from the William Penn Foundation to support the Teacher-Leader Collaborative Grants Program. This program provides project management support, professional development and $5,000-$15,000 grants to teams of Philadelphia teachers and principals for new initiatives that address challenges in their school. Find out more about the Collaborative Grants Program here.

National Philanthropic Trust

A generous gift from The National Philanthropic Trust provides sponsorship to one principal participating in the Neubauer Fellowship. Read about the National Philanthropic Trust’s work here.
