At REAL School Gardens, we maximize the impact of every dollar we raise. We invest in improving schools’ existing assets so they can quickly start producing long-term results. By giving teachers the tools and training they need to become more effective educators, and turning low-income schools into engaging and exciting spaces for kids to learn, we change the trajectory of their educations and their lives.
Increasing our Impact by 2020
In 2016, REAL School Gardens launched an aggressive national growth plan, taking the first step toward expanding our proven program to low-income communities across the country. By 2020, we will operate in 15 cities and empower a network of 15,000 teachers to get their students deeply engaged in school and excited about learning. Reaching these goals means an investment in our organization’s programs and infrastructure.
We are undertaking this challenging growth plan because we know that engaging learning – the kind that we provide – anchors itself deep within children’s minds, sparking an excitement about school, and empowering students to forge a path out of poverty.
We hope you will invest in REAL School Gardens. REAL learning changes lives.
