Our corps members and staff give their all each and every day creating opportunity for students and transforming lives. But we can’t do it alone.
Supporting Teach For America
Did you know over 70 percent of Teach For America's funding comes from individuals, foundations, and corporate partners? As a nonprofit organization, our operations are made possible by these financial contributions. Your donation enables us to find, develop, and support more great leaders, as we work toward a day when all children have access to an excellent education.
How Your Gift Makes a Difference
Teach For America provides the training and development necessary for teachers (also known as “corps members” during their two-year commitment to Teach For America) to bring change to the classroom. Although our corps members receive a salary from their school or district, we offer the support our corps members need in order to thrive and do impactful work throughout their two-year commitment.
We also provide tools, resources, and opportunities for our network of over 56,400 alumni to pursue impact through work in education, advocacy, social entrepreneurship, politics, and other meaningful careers. This is all made possible by your donations.
We are so grateful to the many contributors whose generous gifts are helping us level the playing field for kids across the country.
“One day, I will look back on educational inequity as a thing of the past and feel proud of the role the Teach For America community played in ending it.”Richard D. ParsonsTeach For America National Board MemberSenior Advisor at Providence Equity Partners, Inc.
