Fund for Teachers does not exist without Friends for Teachers – those of you who contribute financially and donate your time and voices to help us spread the word about our nationally-unique approach to impacting education. On the heels of our hometown of Houston hosting the College Football Championship last month, we are particularly grateful for Extra Yard for Teachers and the College Football Playoffs Foundation.
In addition to sponsoring uplifting events in local schools and collaborating with non-profit education partners in and around the city, Extra Yard for Teachers also donated $100,000 to Fund for Teachers earmarked for fellowships designed by Houston-area teachers. Receiving this gift, as well as this vote of confidence in our approach to investing in teachers, models what is possible through non-profit collaboration and makes the upcoming summer one of new knowledge and insights for Houston educators and, afterwards, their students and school communities.
If you want to learn more about how to support teachers, their students and school communities through Fund for Teachers, contact our development director Stephen Butler.
