Today, the broader investing field seeks a reliable, high-quality tool to collect, manage, and analyze impact data.

The mission of the William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund is to improve the effectiveness of education in fostering both personal development and leadership.Connecticut’s children are the focus of the Graustein Memorial Fund’s grantmaking. Their intent is inclusive: to work with rural, urban and suburban communities, and both public and private schools. They want to provide means for our grantees to learn from one another’s experience, and they seek to include those people who will be affected by programs in their design and evaluation. A belief that education benefits both individuals and society as a whole guides their work.
