The Achieve Foundation has announced this year's Teacher Grants, and thanks to the generosity of our community, we are awarding a record amount! Teachers will receive more than $73,000 for 63 creative and cutting-edge programs benefitting schools across the South Orange/Maplewood School District. As you know, these grants are special because they allow teachers to implement innovative projects that make an impact on our students in the classroom and beyond.
But, there's more….since the Achieve Foundation receives an extraordinary number of proposals from teachers, we were not able to fully fund each and every project.
Now, the fun begins...please consider supporting one or more projects of your choice TODAY through February 5! Perhaps there is a project at your school that could benefit your child or a favorite teacher who proposed a great idea. Whatever your reason, it's fun to give DIRECTLY to programs that make a difference. All of the grants listed have met our criteria for making an impact, so you can give directly, knowing they have our stamp of approval. Also, all Direct Grant Funding donations are fully tax-deductible.
You can donate now to help fund the projects of Tuscan teachers Marci Koltenuk, Joi Nelson, Amy Popp and Claire Sinclair!
Please go to https://4elbows.formstack.com/forms/achieve_direct_funding for more information about each grant and to donate online now to the school and project of your choice.
To pay by mail, send your check with the teacher’s name and school in the memo line to Achieve Foundation, PO Box 1084, Maplewood, NJ, 07040.
