Teach For America donations received

This is an online portal with information on donations that were announced publicly (or have been shared with permission) that were of interest to Vipul Naik. The git repository with the code for this portal, as well as all the underlying data, is available on GitHub. All payment amounts are in current United States dollars (USD). The repository of donations is being seeded with an initial collation by Issa Rice as well as continued contributions from him (see his commits and the contract work page listing all financially compensated contributions to the site) but all responsibility for errors and inaccuracies belongs to Vipul Naik. Current data is preliminary and has not been completely vetted and normalized; if sharing a link to this site or any page on this site, please include the caveat that the data is preliminary (if you want to share without including caveats, please check with Vipul Naik). We expect to have completed the first round of development by the end of December 2019. See the about page for more details. Also of interest: pageview data on analytics.vipulnaik.com, tutorial in README, request for feedback to EA Forum.

Knight Foundation6,000,000.0038--Communitieshttps://knightfoundation.org/grants/4677-- Grant period: 12/07/2009 - 01/31/2015; goal: To close the achievement gap of 25,000 students in the Miami-Dade public school system by providing funding for Teach For America Miami-Dade to grow from 95 teachers to 350 teachers per year over five years, while placing the teachers in a feeder pattern Teach For America is the largest provider of teachers for low-income communities in the country, with approximately 7,000 members teaching nationwide. This grant will concentrate the newly enlarged TFA corps in the lowest performing feeder-school patterns in the Miami-Dade system, increasing the time spent at each school and thus having the greatest impact on students as they advance through grade levels. As a result of this grant, TFA expects to see increased student achievement each year, including raising reading levels by one and a half years, increasing children’s mastery of more difficult subjects and closing the gap in FCAT scores between low-income and more affluent students. Earmark: Teach for America Miami Program.
