About Ballmer Group

Ballmer Group is committed to improving economic mobility for children and families in the United States. They fund leaders and organizations that have demonstrated the ability to reshape opportunity and reduce systemic inequities. Their grant to Communities In Schools® (CIS®) helps us meet our bold ambition to scale our model to 1,000 new Title I-eligible schools in America and to build a stronger system that better supports the 12 million students living in poverty.

We are proud to support CIS and believe in the promise of bringing their approach to scale across the U.S. This investment is designed to show how school site coordinators using the CIS model can meet students’ needs on an ongoing basis in order to improve high school graduation rates and, ultimately, economic mobility.
