Classrooms Are at the Core
When it comes to schools, the classroom is the foundation of learning. Because of that, no one has a better understanding of what students need—resources, tools, and technology—than the classroom teacher. In recent years, teachers and parent/teacher organizations have turned to crowdfunding to fill unmet gaps in classroom resources. FoundationGIVE was developed to make it easier for these teachers and PTOs to run their campaigns by centralizing the associated approval, compliance, and administrative processes. It also gives your foundation more exposure to the outcomes of these efforts.
Community Connections Can Always be Stronger
Communities play an essential role in the growth and development of their young people. School foundations are critical when it comes to involving the business community in this growth. Building and managing those relationships is a challenge, though, especially when companies are offering in-kind products and services to benefit community students. Because of that, opportunities provided by community business is often unclaimed. At other times, their donations are distributed unequally across a district’s schools. FoundationGIVE is meant to help solve these challenges and fulfill every possible opportunity by providing a marketplace where teachers can explore all of the available partnerships.
FoundationGIVE was created in partnership with the Nelnet Innovation Hub and The Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools.
