Chiara Deltito-Sharrott is the Founder of CDS Education Consulting where she provides K-12 education leaders with governance support strategies so that they can lead excellent and well-resourced schools.
Chiara brings a unique lens to her work as she has spent significant time working at each layer of the public education sector: the school, district, nonprofit, and state education levels. She started her career as a grant writer and credits this role with developing her ability to plan strategically, generate partnerships, and align programmatic goals to budgets.
Through her Master’s program in Urban Education Policy at Brown University, Chiara was able to develop technical analytical skills related to research, policy, and program evaluation, which she pairs with a commitment to social justice and educational equity as well as a belief in the power of young people.
Together this forms a philosophy for CDS Education Consulting which helps schools to gain and deploy resources in a manner that is both student-centered and aligned programmatically.
Since 2014, Chiara has raised over $26,000,000 for schools and nonprofits throughout the US and has set an ambitious goal of raising $100,000,000 by 2030.
