- The third annual study and ranking of K-12 education foundations by the Caruthers Institute (formerly Dewey & Associates) found that the nation’s top 25 and 50 foundations tend to cluster in six states.
- In announcing the 2016 results, Caruthers Institute reported Florida had 11 foundations in the top 50, Texas had eight, Tennessee and California had three, Colorado and Utah had two, and New York City also had two.
- The Pinellas Education Foundation in Florida and Omaha Schools Foundation in Nebraska have ranked in the top five for the past three years, and 40 foundations raised $2 million or more in 2014, the year from which the study data comes.
