About Flamboyan Foundation

Flamboyan Foundation strives for the day when every child has the opportunity to live a fulfilling life. To make this vision a reality, we produce catalytic and sustainable results to education’s most intractable challenges so children most impacted by inequity thrive. Flamboyan brings strategic leadership and investment of time and money to solve some of the most deeply rooted educational challenges. We study the issues and work with our partners to develop creative solutions and put ideas into practice. We constantly learn from our experiences and adapt our work accordingly. The cornerstone of Flamboyan’s approach is hands-on, purposeful collaboration with nonprofits, school districts, educators, government and community leaders who share our commitment to and focus on achieving ambitious results to improve children’s learning.

In Washington, D.C., we are working to improve student outcomes by transforming the way families and educators work together. Research consistently shows family engagement accelerates student learning. However, districts, schools and teachers often do not know how to best partner with families and provide the information and support needed to help children succeed. We work with educators and other partners to learn about the most effective approaches to family engagement. We then build the capacity of teachers, school leaders and districts by providing the training, resources and on-the-ground support they need. We also invest in education advocacy efforts that enable families to attain the best possible public education for their children.

Our core values

People. We believe in the power, dignity, value, potential, and good intent of all people.

Equity. We challenge ourselves, one another, and our partners to uphold belief in a shared humanity by interrupting bias, dismantling systems of oppression, and lifting up the voices of marginalized people and communities.

Impact. We create lasting, meaningful social change.

Catalytic Action. We pursue our goals with passion and urgency and activate others internally and externally to carry our work even further.
