Quality education is one of the best investments we can make.
We trust the experts to know what to do…that’s why we invest in teachers. By providing grants directly to teachers, we’re helping them improve the educational experience of their students.

Help us provide up to grants to classrooms this year!
Your tax-deductible contributions help us narrow the equality gap in our schools and community.
$50 could provide a classroom with a new set of books. $100 might give students updated math or science tools. $375 is the amount of a new teacher grant for setting up a new classroom, and $750 funds an entire grant for a classroom. Any amount helps!
