Wallace identifies important problems, funds real-world tests of possible solutions, and disseminates what’s been learned nationally to inform field leaders, policymakers and others who can effect beneficial change.​

  • Wallace identifies important knowledge gaps in our areas of interest, develops and tests promising ideas to narrow those gaps and then broadly shares what we learn.
  • Through fruitful collaboration, the foundation and grantees together develop new knowledge and insights to help solve important problems in our areas of interest.
  • Wallace currently has initiatives in six areas: afterschool, arts education, building audiences for the arts, expanded learning, school leadership and summer learning.
