Teachers are creative, resourceful, and excited to bring new ideas, challenges, and opportunities for learning to their students. We are inspired by the passion you have for your work. We also understand that to deliver on that passion, you frequently pay for classroom projects and even basic supplies — out of your own pocket!

That’s why each year Firstmark provides fifteen (15), $500.00 Educator Grants. We want to support your vision to develop innovative learning experiences for your students.
