Thank You For Your Support

We are extremely grateful for our donors’ support! Their generosity has enabled us to build the diverse force of corps members and alumni serving our students and working from all angles to ignite the movement for educational equity. We are proud of the accomplishments of our corps members and alumni, and recognize that these accomplishments were made possible through the support of our champions.

Our Supporters

During the past year, we raised the second highest amount locally in the past 24 years. Our fundraising success was due in part to the more than $920,000 raised from generous donors at our first Annual Benefit Dinner in over 10 years. Additionally, The Otis Booth Foundation pledged $3 million to start The Otis Booth Teach For America – Los Angeles Regional Endowment, which will yield $150,000 per year once fully vested. This is the first regional endowment in the history of our organization!
