Teachers know what teachers need.

Because our Fellows experienced authentic learning, as well as professional validation, resulting from their FFT grants, many are now stepping up to make fellowships possible for peers across the country. Through our “Pay it Forward” campaign, grant recipients as far back as 2001 are sending in checks accompanied by notes explaining why they’re donating:

  • "Every teacher deserves to have this opportunity to refill their energy stores with a great learning experience so they can keep giving to their students."
  • "FFT renewed my spirit in teaching and in life. I want someone else to have the opportunity to be lifted to a new level."
  • "I want other teachers' dreams to become a reality, too."
  • "Hopefully, others passionate about teaching, learning and exposing students to new experiences have the same phenomenal experience that I had through Fund for Teachers"
  • "I was honored with a fellowship that changed my entire teaching platform!"

Thank you to all those listed below choosing to support their colleagues by supporting Fund for Teachers.
