Fund for Innovation


We proudly recognize the effort of educators seeking creative ways to enhance instruction. Our Fund For Innovation (FFI) offers support for new classroom ideas that will significantly improve teacher instruction as well as student achievement. Ignited provides grants of $100 to $1000 to outstanding teachers who have completed our Summer Fellowship Program and are in need of additional resources to implement an innovative and exciting idea in their classroom.

“I saw as a teacher how, if you take that spark of learning and you ignite it, you can take a child from any background to a lifetime of creativity and accomplishment.” – Paul Wellsone, Former US Senator
