Philanthropist MacKenzie Scott recently donated $2 million to COFI to advance our work in building the leadership, power, and voice of low-income parents. The impact of Ms. Scott’s unrestricted gift of $2 million will be substantial – allowing us to reinforce COFI’s organizational infrastructure for long-term sustainability as we continue to build the organization into a national model for parent leadership.
Ms. Scott’s donation was spotlighted in the media by several outlets. Here is a link roundup of the coverage:
