Innovative Educator Grants in Action

The foundation’s Innovative Educator Grants directly impact students—by providing programs that help them connect with their peers, learn new skills and explore their potential. Your donations are providing resources that allow teachers to innovate and educate. 

Increasing Engagement

When students have something to look forward to at school, they engage more in the material they are learning and develop the skills they need to be successful.
