Citizen Schools

Citizen Schools partners with middle schools to expand the learning day for children in low-income communities across the country. On October 13, 2011, Stephanie Ng published an evaluation of Citizen Schools with a "HOLD" rating.

NPI Rating: HOLD

Citizen Schools has a solid base of political and corporate partners, in addition to an extensive amount of research in support of the organization’s mission. Both contribute to the organization’s ability to raise funds. However, Citizen Schools has struggled to generate sufficient funding to cover its program expenses in recent years. At the same time, the organization is attempting significant expansion in the next few years, creating uncertainty around whether it can generate enough contributions to simultaneously achieve its growth initiatives and meet the expenses of its existing operations. We would recommend that large donors seek clarity on this point.
