AFT Innovation Fund

Bright IdeaSince 2009, the American Federation of Teachers Innovation Fund, a project within the AFT Education Foundation, has made more than 50 investments across the country to local union affiliates, with the purpose of identifying, nurturing and promoting union-led innovations in public education. The fund’s work aligns with the AFT’s four pillars of powerful and purposeful public education: promoting children’s well-being, supporting powerful learning, building teacher capacity and fostering cultures of collaboration.
