NASDTEC FORWARD FUND…Pay it Forward by Giving Back


The NASDTEC Forward Fund, established by the Executive Board in 2018, serves as our first philanthropic outreach to give back to the educational community. It’s initial priority is to support classroom teachers, especially those in under-represented groups and those who serve in high-need schools.


Honoring the initial priority for the Forward Fund,  four teachers from each of the four NASDTEC regions were selected to attend the June Conference in Denver and each received $1000 to further their work, which is aligned with the goals and mission of NASDTEC, as well as the focus of the Forward Fund.


The first four Forward Fund recipients are currently using their funds for these initiatives:

  • Recruitment of male teachers of color
  • Teacher Leadership and Family Engagement for Students with Disabilities
  • Support initiatives for Refugees and English Language Learners and hosting Diversity night
  • Journals and materials for Social Justice camp aimed at developing leadership and positive connection with peers
