The Sayers Foundations’ mission is to support K-12 schools, administrators, and teachers who are challenging the status quo by implementing successful technology based learning models. Every child deserves a high quality public education and we are determined to identify and support those schools who believe that all children are deserving. They are education reform advocates, financial supporters, and technology partners to schools whose primary objective is to prepare students to be more college and or career ready, and more capable of succeeding in an increasingly technology driven global economy.

Extraordinary change requires extraordinary people. Sayers Foundations’ mission and work rests on a fundamental belief that smart investments in leadership generate significant returns. We believe that for schools, districts, and systems to enable all children to achieve at high levels, we must focus on effective technology based teaching and the quality of leadership and management of these schools.Last year the foundation provided $20,000 to education grants and their goal for 2014 is to provide $40,000 in grants to Chicago public schools who meet their grant criteria.
