Elisabeth Stock built CFY from a nascent non-profit in 1999 to a national leader in helping low-income children do better in school by extending classroom learning to the home. CFY operates in five cities across the country and also runs an affiliate network of almost 40 non-profits in 24 states and the District of Columbia. CFY was recently awarded $27M from the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Elisabeth is an Ashoka fellow and has served as an advisor to numerous federal and city agencies. She has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, on National Public Radio and in Crain's New York Business as one of "40 New Yorkers under 40" shaping the city.

Prior to her work at CFY, Elisabeth served in the Office of the Vice President and in the Domestic Policy Council as a White House Fellow. She was a high school teacher for two years while a Peace Corps volunteer and later worked for the World Bank on appropriate technology in Africa, traveling extensively and publishing numerous articles.
