Why should you invest in our work?
We are all consumers of our public education system. From the businessman who hires tomorrow’s workforce to the parent who sends his child to a neighborhood school – we all have a vested interest in the success of our public school system and the children it supports. But we can’t be content to sit back and hope that others make the changes necessary to ensure the success of every child.
At The Fund, we believe a culture of excellence and innovation must exist in every classroom to improve academic outcomes and prepare our students for their brightest future. When you support our work, you are investing in an innovation climate that our public schools desperately need.
So why shouldn’t I just donate to my local school or teacher?
Schools, districts and teachers are always in need of additional funding and community support. But simply writing a check to your school directly is just that, a one-time donation. To see real transformation, we need investments. We need people who are willing to champion the idea of success for every child and we need financial contributions that go can towards capacity building. Supporting the innovative ideas from one region or district can impact us all as those successes are scaled throughout the Commonwealth.
Every donation, no matter how big or small, can help.
