Edge Fund - Education Grants for Teachers

Teachers come up with the best ideas to advance learning in their classrooms.


The Edge Fund - Education Grants for Teachers

The Edge Fund is a philanthropic extension of Learners Edge that is dedicated to having a lasting effect upon teaching and student learning by providing grants for teachers to support inspired learning.

Learner’s Edge has set aside a portion of its annual revenue to support education grants for teachers in PreK-12 school classrooms (within the United States).

How is the Edge Fund Making a Difference?

"...the experience of having older students teaching was invaluable for both them and our children. As a result of the presentations our students' understanding of how geometric shapes occur in their every day world was greatly enhanced....we are hoping it can become a yearly event" 

Carrie Fosselman, Principal
Country Elementary School, Pinckney, MI


 

 "The commercial goes something like this:

Books - $500
Materials - $200
LIstening to children learn how to read - PRICELESS!

Mrs. Orton (grant recipient) has an excitement for books that I have seen in no other and she cleverly carries over that excitement in her classroom. I am thrilled that more books can be placed in the hands of Chester Students through this grant."

Shelly Jensen
Speech Therapist
Chester Area School


 

"...I am so thankful for this grant and the work it has allowed us to do with students. Overall, students have a better intelligence of how music works in our world, have had more fun learning about music and most importantly have developed a deeper appreciation for music in our lives through this grant." 

Eric Songer 
Chaska Middle School West
Chaska, Minnesota
