A Community of Supporters: Why We Give to TFA
Teach For America has had a profound impact on my life, introducing me to a city that I have grown to love and plan to never leave. Through TFA, I have met hundreds of talented professionals, each playing a role to ensure One Day in Indy is possible. I’ve also met talented students such as Codie, David, and Eli, kids far smarter than me but not afforded the same opportunities and privileges. Our work cannot stop until this is true.
I want more leaders to have the formative TFA opportunity I experienced – to change and be changed – which is why I am participating in the Alumni Giving Challenge this year. Knowing that 100% of the funds raised for TFA-Indy will help incoming corps members transition to this great city is icing on the cake. I can’t wait to see their impact on Indy.
To date, more than 8,700 alumni nation-wide have given to the Alumni Giving Challenge this year, including about 60 living in Indy. All donations of $10+ through November 28 will be matched 1:1 by the TFA National Board. First-time donors and those who commit to giving $10 or more monthly will be matched 2:1. Join our network of supporters and leaders who are invested in our collective leadership and impact - in the movement for educational equity, in a better future for all kids, and in One Day. DONATE TODAY.
