Imagine Learning, the largest provider of digital curriculum solutions in the U.S., serving 10 million students in more than half the school districts nationwide, announced the launch of the Imagine Learning Foundation. With a funding commitment of $5 million, the Imagine Learning Foundation was created with one principal goal in mind: fostering the well-being of learners and the people who support them at home and in their communities.
Initially, the Foundation will distribute grants to qualified organizations through two key programs: The Imagine Signature Grant Program and a companion Grassroots Grant Program. The Imagine Signature Grant Program is open for applications through March 2022 and winners will be in announced in June 2022. Initial awards will fund two significant grants to two mission-aligned national non-profit organizations that:
- Support initiatives that foster the learning well-being of youth, families, and educators at home and in the community; and/or
- Study the current impacts that social, physical, mental, and emotional well-being have on accelerating student achievement across diverse communities.
The regional Grassroots Grant Program will open for employee-recommended applications in May 2022 with winners announced over the summer. The Grassroots Grant program will award grant-winners identified by regional teams of Imagine Learning employees that focus on social and emotional learning and digital education equity in out-of-classroom learning spaces in their respective local communities.
“At Imagine Learning, we imagine a world where classrooms know no boundaries as we challenge ourselves each day to ignite learning breakthroughs by seeking new ways to empower educators, engage students and connect families,” said Jonathan Grayer, Chairman and CEO of Imagine Learning. “The impact of the pandemic over the past two years on the emotional lives of students and families is in many ways incalculable and has only exacerbated the pressing need for equitable, personalized, and collaborative solutions that help educators, students, and their families navigate their learning journeys in and out of the classroom.
