Academy Matching Campaign

We are reaching out to Academy graduates today to ask you to give back to the Learning Forward Foundation to support an educator and share the rich Academy learning experience.

As Academy graduates, we know the difference the Academy made in supporting our professional learning. Through the exploration of a Problem of Practice using a Theory of Action, we were able to explore how to improve and deepen professional learning best practices in our schools.

The deep learning conversations we had with colleagues throughout the 2 1⁄2 year learning experience impacted our professional growth and development and continues today.

Through a generous donation from Vaughn Gross, a dedicated supporter of the Learning Forward Foundation, we are able to offer a “dollar for dollar” matching donation up to $2,000. This means that your donation will go even further in supporting an educator scholarship for the 2022 Academy experience.

Donate today to make a difference in our education system through the lens of professional learning. Every dollar donated will help reach the goal of building the capacity of leaders to establish and sustain highly effective professional learning.

Thank you in advance for your contribution to this important request.
