The Wallace Foundation "seeks to support and share effective ideas and practices that will strengthen education leadership, arts participation and out-of-school learning.

"A legacy of DeWitt and Lila Acheson Wallace, creators of The Reader's Digest Association, The Wallace Foundation has grown to become among the top 40 private foundations in the United States, with assets of more than $1.6 billion. Through an integrated, team-based approach involving research and communications, in addition to grant-making, the Foundation extends its influence beyond its direct grantees. This is a recognition that significant and sustainable change in our education and cultural systems requires information and insight, and the Foundation had set as its strategy to be a “knowledge center” for policy-makers and practitioners in its areas of focus."
