T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® National Center Funders and Partners

The work of the T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® National Center is made possible by the generous support of national foundations.  Center work is also supported by fees for services. Funding for the Center supports the Center’s work and rarely directly supports scholarships or salary supplements through state T.E.A.C.H. and WAGE$ Programs. State projects must raise funds for scholarships, supplements and the administration of the program.
