Goals Met! Sunsetting the Educator Innovation Fund
In more ways than one, the Innovation Fund has accomplished its goals, and resources invested in the Fund could now be better applied to other areas. The ways in which RISE educators have engaged with DonorsChoose, coupled with evolutions in RISE’s strategy for supporting partners in a sustainable and impactful way, motivate us to wind down the Innovation Fund as we enter the 2022-23 school year. This strategic shift will allow RISE to direct more resources towards our core strategies, including providing a more streamlined focus on our RISE by 5 implementation. RISE educators are encouraged to continue using the DonorsChoose platform to secure additional resources for their schools, and all educators may submit proposals and learn more about projects submitted by other educators by visiting DonorsChoose.org.
