Partnership for progress

Future Fund for Education is an initiative of the Tierney Family Foundation that works as a catalyst for African education entrepreneurs. We invest financial and intellectual capital in talented people leading early to mid-stage education ventures with a proven ability to create meaningful change.


When we partner with entrepreneurs and their ventures, our investment strategy goes beyond simply offering financial support. We provide multi-year technical assistance, mentorship and knowledge sharing, as well as capital.


The team has been working in Africa for several decades, investing in and collaborating on education, business, finance and social entrepreneurship initiatives.


We’re committed to improving education on the continent, and we are inspired by the African partners with whom we have worked. We seek partners equally committed to long-term, transformational change.
