“I can think of no better return on investment than supporting a program that can change the lives of children.”
T. Denny Sanford
Entrepreneur and Philanthropist, Denny Sanford Foundation
Sanford Programs are made possible through generous funding from entrepreneur and philanthropist, T. Denny Sanford. Mr. Sanford is a devoted advocate for programs that enhance the well-being of children and knows, first hand, the powerful and lasting impact of inspirational teachers. Mr. Sanford's investment supports the creation of innovative resources that will lead to improved outcomes for children.
Sanford Programs, formally launched in September 2014, were established through a generous gift by renowned philanthropist and businessman Mr. Sanford to serve the global needs of the 21st century by providing innovative and inspirational education programs to teachers and to nonprofit and for-profit leaders through the Institute of Philanthropy.
Sanford Programs are designed with a commitment to making a difference in society. The Programs' mission is to create positive societal change through the development of nonprofit leaders and to create educators who teach inspirational programs serving worldwide needs.
Supported by a generous gift from philanthropist and businessman T. Denny Sanford, the Sanford Education Programs are pleased to announce its 2018 Sanford Grants, which will be distributed across Sanford Harmony, Sanford Inspire, and the Sanford Institute of Philanthropy. These grants will be used for the purpose of developing new Sanford Program partnerships with school districts, schools, and higher education institutions interested in creating positive societal change, as well as to deepen relationships with current Sanford Programs partners to increase benefits for teachers and students, and to strengthen nonprofits that serve their communities. If you are a potential new partner or a current partner, we invite you to apply for one of the six available funding opportunities.
The Sanford Education Collaborative is a network of universities committed to expanding a nationwide movement to create a new paradigm for Pre-K-12 teaching excellence and student achievement.
