The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative has issued $110 million in grants to education causes since January 2018, according to new details posted to the organization’s website.

The list of grants represents CZI’s first thorough accounting of its own education giving, and the total indicates that the organization remains one of the largest players in education philanthropy.

The information, which also includes a list of investments in for-profit companies, sheds new light on the strategy of CZI, which is funded by Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook fortune and led by his wife, pediatrician Priscilla Chan. CZI says it donated to more than 80 organizations over the last 15 months, but other gifts were dwarfed by grants to the Summit charter network and New Schools Venture Fund, which together took in more than $40 million.
