Sponsor a Teacher

Support a teacher’s commitment to unleash
the potential of dozens of Bay Area students.

Nine out of ten Bay Area students are not getting the education they deserve.

Consider . . .

  • High school dropouts between the ages of 18-24 can expect to earn an annual income of just over $20,000.
  • Individuals without a high school diploma are the most likely to be unemployed, need state-funded medical care, and draw upon welfare.
  • When a young person doesn’t receive a quality education, they are far more likely to spend time in prison.

Every day across the Bay Area, TFA teachers work to address the educational inequity that has for far too long suppressed opportunity for our most underserved students.

The TFA Bay Area Sponsor A Teacher program is designed specifically for donors seeking to make a targeted impact in closing the opportunity gap that holds back children living in poverty.

Your gift of $5,000 will provide one teacher an entire year of 1:1 classroom coaching and tailored professional development. As a sponsor, you will hear directly from a teacher about students’ progress and their first-hand experience as an education leader working to change the odds for all students.

Help give all children the education they deserve. Sponsor a Teacher, today.
