The Learning Forward Foundation raises funds for awarding grants and scholarships to educators’ who desire to gain knowledge and skills in professional learning to lead change actions that result in equity and excellence in teaching and learning. We believe in equity, diversity, and inclusion, and share responsibility for each awardee’s realization of successful outcomes. Because of our inherent commitment to professional learning, we are dedicated to creating a more supportive and knowledgeable world of professional learning for each person/team/leader to respond equitably to every child and young adult.
After we raise funds for educators’ growth, we support them as they learn, in their context, to lead professional learning efforts with competence and confidence resulting in positive change for each of their students. Our impact has a systemic effect across individuals, teams, and organizations.
We appreciate, and express gratitude for your gifts that allow us to provide resources, support, and inspiration for leading professional learning impacting and transforming educators’ and student lives.
