Donor Update

Your commitment to the Foundation has impacted adult and student learning in our schools in positive ways. In these rapidly changing times, we continue to use the challenges before us as learning opportunities to impact educators and students in their learning. The Learning Forward Foundation is in the process of considering how best to continue to support educators with our intentional focus on increasing and supporting equity in learning.

As you know, the Foundation currently supports deep professional learning experiences through Learning Forward’s signature program, the Academy. This coming year Learning Forward will be taking time to renew and refresh the Academy experience. Therefore, in consultation with Learning Forward leadership, our Learning Forward Foundation (LFF) scholarships to the Learning Forward Academy will be awarded in 2022 to align with the LF decision to extend the current Academy participation until 2022. We will continue to award the Dale Hair Affiliate Grant for 2021.

Please know that the LFF fundraising efforts will continue to award scholarships to the Learning Forward Academy when it begins again in July 2022. The LFF support to our current scholarship awardees will continue through Scholarships and Grants regular check-ins and Research and Support Touchpoint reflective learning conversations.

We thank you for your ongoing commitment to supporting professional learning for educators. Because of your donation better teaching and learning environments for children and youth now exist in our classrooms. Your engagement with us matters and we want to share our appreciation for putting your trust and your confidence in us as good stewards of your financial contributions.

We hope that you will continue to join us on our learning journey and remain as committed to quality professional learning and equity in our schools for our children and their educators.
