INVESTING IN TEACHERS
By directly supporting teachers, and especially cohorts of teachers, we can enhance the education of and opportunities available to all students.
We support organizations that identify, recruit, mentor, develop and recognize superior teaching. We help create environments in which teachers and students can flourish.
Our flagship program, the LIGHT Awards, provides grants (of up to $30,000 over 2 years) to cohorts of teachers to support their professional growth. We enable them to pursue the high quality training of their choice, with the support and materials they need to succeed and make a difference at their school, district or beyond.
