- Recent reforms in school funding and education governance have made securing private support an important activity for many public schools and school districts. Through their pilot study of Los Angeles County districts and schools, the authors identify the private givers to public education, examine public-private partnerships that have developed and the mechanisms used to secure private resources, and identify the various types of private giving and how those contributions are used. In addition, the authors document the sorts of monetary and in-kind resources that schools and districts are most likely to secure given the economic resources available within their local communities. The authors also offer general strategies that schools and districts can use to secure private support and more-focused strategies to meet the specific challenges in raising private support for public education.
