We Invest in Education
Drawing on our unique family history, The Gamba Family Foundation credits education as the catalyst to positive life outcomes. Obsessed with closing the achievement gap, we fund nonprofit programs and schools in socio-economically challenged areas. We also provide scholarships for qualified need-based students.
We Seek Proven Outcomes
Insisting on accountability and documented evidence of successful student-centered approaches, we envision a world of empowered students who will lead rewarding and productive adult lives.
We Optimize Private Funding
At our core, as a family-run foundation we believe our due diligence with private resources is essential to help organizations with successful track records. We fund groups thoughtfully managed by growth-mindset leaders who put children first. We assess the ability to tackle inequity. We evaluate the capacity to scale solutions.

Impacting the World of Education…One Student at a Time
Before and since its inception, John and Mary Anne Gamba and the Gamba Family Foundation have awarded meaningful resources to support a variety of approaches including tuition assistance for students, teacher training pipelines, school transformation strategies, technology enhancements, scholar athlete programs, and education programs developed for PreK-12, undergraduate and post graduate schools.
We Believe in Philanthropy as a Family Priority
We formed our Foundation with a mission to make a difference in education and share a spirit of giving back as a family.
