Marianna McCall Trust for Learning

Marianna Kulak McCall is a founding partner of Trust for Learning. In researching high-quality learning options around the country, she has spent years exploring why so many families lack access to the education that would give their children the best start in life. Marianna believes every child deserves the right to reach their full potential. She also believes that system-wide change happens when policymakers, communities, advocates, and funders work together. In addition to founding Trust for Learning, Marianna is a trustee of the McCall Kulak Family Foundation, which focuses on education. She is also active in statewide and national education advocacy.

Marianna has previously worked on international development efforts in the nonprofit sector for Save the Children, where she coordinated international relief efforts, as well as for the Financial Services Volunteer Corps, where she was the regional director for Eastern Europe and Russia. Her private-sector experience includes serving as director of operations for Astrum International Corporation in Moscow, Russia, where she represented several American manufacturers and opened the first American retail stores in Moscow. She previously served as a director of Delus Corp, a registered NY investment advisor. Marianna has served on several non-profit boards. Marianna earned degrees from Georgetown University (B.S.), University of Connecticut (MBA), and Bank Street College of Education (MS.Ed.)
