Ways to Give

Individual Gifts

Your gift no matter the amount is an investment in the professional growth of educators who in turn help guide students toward their chosen career paths and build skills that prepare them for college and careers. Our program is made possible through the support of our individual, corporate and foundation partners.

Programming Sponsorship

Support Innovation in Education

$5,000 to $10,000 supports education innovations in various areas including alumni projects with local school districts, blended learning professional development, and the creation of virtual education resources.

Support a Full Fellowship

$20,000 sponsors a teacher fellowship for one year. You will collaborate with the program to create an internship and curricular project for your Kenan Fellow that best translates your unique STEM priorities or opportunities into scalable classroom applications and project-based lessons.


We work with donors to meet your communication and recognition goals. Recognition could include a press release, and highlights in varying publications, such as social media, online campaigns, e-newsletters, and print brochures. Donors receive annual invitations to the Fellows showcase and graduation celebration in the spring.


Endowments give donors opportunities to create living legacies. By investing in the Kenan Fellows Program for Teacher Leadership, you can help build meaningful partnerships between leaders in education and industry that will have a lasting impact on K-12 students and their communities.
