We support the teaching profession and student success.
Our Teachers & Students domain currently supports work in Wisconsin, which produces a surplus of teachers, and Alaska, which experiences teacher shortages.

Our grantmaking focuses on improving professional development and increasing recruitment of qualified students and teachers so that more high-quality educators who teach the arts serve and remain in K-12 schools. This program is in its early stages, with efforts focused in Wisconsin and Alaska.
