Grants to Educators // The NEA Foundation

Whether it’s providing educators with funding, best-practice ideas, support, or accolades, everything we do is designed to help students achieve more. After all, students who are better engaged are more likely to succeed, and students who succeed are more likely to go on to do great things. The way we see it, together with our partners, our funders, the educators, and the communities and students we serve, we’re investing in a brighter future.
