Trust for Learning Supporting Equitable Educator Development (SEED) Fund

10/1/2020 – 3/31/2022


The Trust for Learning created a targeted fund to catalyze innovations that create or expand equitable, high-quality education development pathways. As a Trust for Learning philanthropic partner, the Brady Education Foundation contributed to this streamlined, collaborative fund which supports creative COVID-19 era projects led by early learning providers, training organizations, institutions of higher education, and other grantees to move the needle on one or more of the following objectives:

  1. Expand high-quality models of educator development by reducing barriers to participation for low-income educators and educators of color
  2. Create on-ramps to degree and credential pathways by strengthening articulation between educator development experiences and institutions of higher education
  3. Integrate anti-bias, anti-racist training into educator training curricula and materials
  4. Influence policy or regulatory mechanisms to better align high-quality educator models with state license or credentialing requirements
