Our Donors

Educators for Excellence is proud to receive financial support from a diverse base of nonprofit, corporate, and family foundations as well as individual donors, including teachers and community members, who believe in the power of teacher-led change. To encourage our broad base of support, we aim for no single foundation or donor to contribute more than 10 percent of our projected annual operating budget. Funding for our organization is invested in opportunities and resources for teachers to:

  • Stay informed about education policy and research,
  • Expand their leadership skills within and outside of their classroom,
  • Connect with like-minded colleagues and key education decision-makers, and
  • Take action by developing policy recommendations and advocating for change.

Our donors recognize that empowered educators need to lead the dialogue about improving our education system in order for transformational change to happen in ways that benefit public schools and students. Hence, our donors invest in E4E's organizational model, where current classroom teachers decide and drive our policy positions and advocacy.
