SchoolSeed is the independent fund for Greater Memphis classrooms. Established in 2009 as a nonprofit organization, SchoolSeed supports community efforts that positively impact students and teachers.
SchoolSeed is the independent fiscal agent of the historic $90 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to support teacher effectiveness in the public school system. We swiftly and successfully reached our goal of raising a $18.6 million local match to support this work.
SchoolSeed Foundation is working hard to directly impact classrooms by making sure both students and teachers are equipped with the proper tools. The Teacher Tool Box is a FREE classroom supply store for Shelby County Schools Teachers. From glue sticks to pencils and rulers to much more, educators can access materials and will be relieved of the worry that their kids may be without.
