Our investments are designed to amplify the impact of our product and human capital and to drive measurable, lasting outcomes at scale.
Our holistic approach
Pluralsight One invests in transformative solutions for the social and K-12 education sectors. We believe in betting big when opportunities arise. We are driven by our guiding principles and go deep with our partners, because sometimes the only way to realize your moonshot is by investing in someone else’s.
how we do it
How we invest
Fund impact, not symptoms
We fund high-impact organizations that are experts in their work and only invest in organizations that measure impact.
Love of humanity
Our partners are unrelenting in their commitment to humanity and equality. They are working to ensure the basic human right of education is universally realized.
We invest in organizations that are without ego. They partner to accelerate their impact and envision a future where they are obsolete because the root problem they set out to address has been solved.
Build agency, not reliance
We believe that talent is evenly distributed. We invest in organizations that built agency and sustainability through local leadership development and co-creating solutions with the communities they support.
Impact at scale doesn't come from projects. It comes from understanding systems, addressing root causes and chipping away at the linkages between cause and effect. We fund toward systems change and seek out partners with a commitment to outstanding impact.
Unrestricted funding drives innovation and growth. We only work with organizations that we trust will maximize unrestricted funds.
Partnerships for sustained impact
We understand the time and commitment it takes to achieve lasting change. We strive to achieve sustained, multi-generational impact with trusted, balanced partners who understand the nuanced implications of their activities and track outcomes to ensure solutions last.
No unsolicited requests
We don't accept unsolicited proposals or requests for funding. We study organizations’ impact methodologies and draw from documents they should already have on hand.
We conduct site visits and cultivate honest lines of communication. We explore opportunities to deepen and scale impact and are engaged partners in this work.
A scalable solution
We look for solutions that can drive exponential impact; solutions that have the right leadership, a smart strategy, bold ambition and the team needed to execute with excellence.
Where we fund
Pluralsight One invests globally while maintaining a special focus on its home state of Utah.
How we work
We look for organizations that are built around a big idea, act on evidence, are masters in their craft and are deeply connected to the problems they seek to tackle. These organizations keep pace with the evolution of needs, applying technology to accelerate their work and amplify social impact. We fund toward:
Radical solutions to huge problems
