Description: We are a public charity founded by educators for educators to improve public education for all students. Since our beginning in 1969, the Foundation has served as a laboratory of learning, offering funding and other resources to public school educators, their schools, and districts to solve complex teaching and learning challenges. The NEA Foundation receives contributions from corporations, foundations, and individuals, including educators. We take seriously our commitment to the public school educators and students we serve and our stewardship of the donors who contribute to our work. We are proud that we have received Charity Navigator’s highest, 4-star rating on financial health, accountability and transparency for the past nine years, a record that puts us in the top two percent of all rated charities.
Through the NEA Foundation Global Learning Fellowship, public school educators develop the knowledge and skills to integrate global competency into their daily classroom instruction, advocate for global competency in their schools and districts, and help students to thrive in our increasingly interconnected world. Fellows transform their classrooms to give students a global perspective.
NEA Foundation Global Learning Fellows participate in a 12-month professional development program that includes in-person workshops, online coursework, webinars by leading experts, peer learning, and an international field study experience.
The NEA Foundation partners with EF Educational Tours, a global leader in international education, to design transformative field study experiences for the Fellows.
