Project Description

We all know a teacher who has IMPACTED your life or the life of your child. During this time of great uncertainty, teachers have gone above and beyond to provide consistency, support, and encouragement for every student in their classroom. Now, they need a place where they are EMPOWERED, EQUIPPED, and have a COMMUNITY. The ChangeMakers for Impact network is that place. 

Your $30.00 gift will provide one teacher a free, lifetime membership to the ChangeMakers for Impact network so they can join educators all over the world through authentic collaboration. You can be the difference maker in the life of a teacher. Whether you choose a specific teacher you know or have us send this gift to a teacher in need, the ChangeMakers for Impact lifetime membership provides a connection that will change the way they impact the lives of students. 

To EQUIP a teacher so they can make the impossible, POSSIBLE for students, join us by gifting $30.00 today. And help us reach our goal of providing free, lifetime memberships to 3,333+ teachers worldwide!

 

ChangeMakers for Impact is an online collaborative network with a mission to EMPOWER, EQUIP, and ENCOURAGE teachers through authentic collaboration with fellow teachers worldwide. 

"The ChangeMakers for Impact network has been a game-changer for me, both professionally and personally. Through the network, I have had the privilege of meeting many new people who are seeking to embrace exploration in their professional careers. The connections I have made are authentic, challenging me to think and grow well beyond what I could in my own school setting."

- Academic Counselor, Minnesota

 

The ChangeMakers for Impact network is ALL about cultivating authentic relationships, stimulating lifelong learning and growth, and co-creating opportunities together that we could not have accomplished alone. 

Amanda and Angela seek to provide solutions to problems teachers face daily while cultivating the #PowerOfTogether!

 

I have been so inspired by this network and you both as girl bosses, that I am committed to staying in education (was considering leaving the field) and while it is still hard, you have set the trail on fire for me to change education however I can. Thank you for breathing new life into my career and passion for education!

- High School Teacher, Minnesota

The Campaign FAQs

Where is the money going? 

  • First and foremost, to continue to steward FREE lifetime memberships to as many educators world-wide as possible (value: $29.99/year) - our goal 3,333!

  • If we exceed our goal of providing 3,333 free, lifetime memberships to educators worldwide, we would love to allocate some funds to the following:

    • Curriculum development to translate more content to online workshops/courses and ongoing resource development 

    • Another area for growth and expansion would be curating videos and podcasting for use on the network! Funds will be used for technology and personnel to make that happen. 

    • Marketing the ChangeMakers for Impact network to increase new members both in education and outside education. 

    • Ongoing website development and engagement strategy
