Imagine Learning Foundation invites applications for education research

The Imagine Learning Foundation, the philanthropic wing of the Imagine Learning company, works to foster the well-being of learners and the people who support them at home and in their communities.

According to the foundation, schools can better develop healthy and supportive learning environments when social and emotional learning (SEL) programs are extended from classrooms into homes and communities. To that end, the foundation aims to bridge the meaningful connection between SEL in the classroom and SEL outside the classroom by facilitating access to social-emotional learning at home and in the community. By bringing SEL into life beyond the classroom, the foundation wishes to activate a learner’s full community and support system to ignite more breakthroughs in every learning environment.

The Imagine Signature Grant Program has established two funding priorities to advance this work:

Well-Being Outside the Classroom: Supports social, physical, mental, and emotional well-being programs, activities, or services that foster the learning well-being of youth, families, and educators within the home and community environments.

Education and Community Research: Studies the current impacts that social, physical, mental, and emotional well-being has on accelerating student achievement across diverse communities.

The ILF will award two $100,000 Imagine Signature Grants for one or a combination of both funding priority areas of focus. The awarded programs will be funded for up to twelve months and program start date(s) may occur between July 1, 2022, and September 30, 2022.

National organizations will be prioritized, though the ILF will accept grant applications from regional organizations. Priority will be given to organizations focused on high-need communities.

To be eligible, applicants must be tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Imagine Learning website.

Deadline: April 30, 2022
