The Charter School Growth Fund (CSGF) is the nation’s largest philanthropic investor in charter school networks. CSGF’s rigorous, data-driven approach allows them to identify and invest in the best charter schools, impacting the lives of over 530,000 children in 31 states across the nation.
We partnered with CSGF for seven consecutive years to design their annual investor report. Each report reflects the accomplishments of the past year and casts a vision for the year ahead.
Over time, the annual investor report has become more narrative-driven. However, at 80–120 pages, the report is still extensive. The biggest challenge in designing a report of this size is ensuring it is engaging and digestible for multiple audiences. To accomplish this, we feature full-page photos, student stories, dozens of charts and graphs, and varied stock to delineate sections of the report.
