NEW YORK, July 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Teach For All and the Chubb Charitable Foundation announced today an extension of their partnership through 2021. Chubb committed an additional $1.5 million grant over the next three years, bringing the Foundation's total giving to Teach For All to $2.4 million. Driven by a shared mission to develop collective leadership to ensure all children can fulfill their potential, Teach For All is a global network of 50 independent, locally led and governed organizations, and a global organization that works to accelerate the impact of the network.
Each network partner recruits and develops promising young graduates and professionals to teach for a minimum of two years in their nations' under-resourced schools and communities, and invests in their development as collaborative leaders who will continue to pursue lasting change for children throughout their careers both within and outside of the education sector, as teachers, school leaders, policy makers or social entrepreneurs.
In 2018, Chubb completed a two-year, $940,000 grant to Teach For All. The Chubb Charitable Foundation's grant provided support to network partners in countries where Chubb has significant operations, including Teach For America, Enseña por Colombia, Enseña por México and Teach For Thailand. The grant provided funding for teacher recruitment and training programs.
The renewed partnership will continue to support the same network partners with funding for initiatives that will give more children access to quality education and support, and develop the leadership potential of their teachers.
"Chubb's partnership with Teach For All has supported significant achievements in the education field in four countries where Chubb employees live and work," said Lori Dunstan, Vice President, Global Corporate Giving at Chubb. "We are proud to extend our relationship with Teach For All and support the important work the organization is doing to ensure that students from underserved communities have access to quality education and can develop into future leaders."
The Teach For All grant represents one of the Chubb Charitable Foundation's multi-year partnerships with a core group of non-profit organizations aligned with Chubb's philanthropic mission. Education is one of the Foundation's three core global philanthropic pillars, which also includes poverty and health as well as the environment.
"We are deeply grateful to the Chubb Charitable Foundation for its partnership and continued support of Teach For All and our network partners," said Wendy Kopp, CEO and Co-Founder of Teach For All. "With their support, we have been able to strengthen the recruitment and development of our network's teachers and leaders. Chubb's additional support will help us invest in initiatives that will further strengthen our impact on students and communities."
