Smiling children.

Our mission is to serve as a catalyst in maximizing the skills and creativity of educators at the K-12 levels and in cultivating pioneering approaches to teaching that result in dynamic student learning.

The McCarthey Dressman Education Foundation sponsors proposals that enhance student learning and educational quality, paying particular attention to those that best serve the at-risk and under-funded, including:

  • Curriculum that excites and challenges
  • Inquiry projects that promote reflection and growth
  • After-school programs that enrich and inspire

The Foundation partners with individuals to expand educational opportunities for America’s youth that inspire students by nurturing their curiosity about the world and their place in it. Funding includes scholarships that provide far more than just tuition and books; grants that benefit the lives of more than just those who receive them; and results that reach far beyond the classroom in which the projects are introduced.


… for maximizing innovation and results in classrooms and education departments


…for increasing the effectiveness of individual educators and small teams of teachers


…at New Mexico State University; the University of California, Santa Cruz; The University of Texas at Austin; and Stephen F. Austin State University

    It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly donate to this excellent blog! I suppose for now i’ll
    settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.

    I look forward to brand new updates and will talk about this
    blog with my Facebook group. Chat soon!
