October 25, 2018- SEED is pleased to announce it has received a $7,000 donation from a fellow education non-profit, Measured Progress. This generous donation will be used in part to fund the Fall Grant Cycle.
Since its inception in 1983, Measured Progress has improved teaching and learning by providing customizable assessment products and educational services. Measured Progress focuses on making a positive impact, innovation, and teamwork, all with a common goal of improving education as a whole. “We support SEED’s mission to create 21st century learning opportunities to prepare students for post-secondary education and careers,” said Jeanne Supple of Measured Progress. SEED funds a variety of grants which encompass professional development for teachers, to innovate curriculum and tools in the classroom to experiential learning experiences.
SEED is currently underway with its Lighting the Way to Learning appeal, an intense effort by SEED's entirely volunteer-led organization to raise $150,000 toward creating a $500,000 endowment fund. The endowment fund will create a legacy for educational excellence in Dover public schools by allowing the nonprofit to underwrite grant awards in perpetuity.
