Partner Spotlight


Alan and Jennifer Fournier are philanthropists deeply invested in improving education for New Jersey students.  In addition to supporting Teach For America, the Fourniers also support other local education nonprofits, including our partner schools in the TEAM network in Newark, Better Education for Kids (B4K which is a political organization), and the NJ SEEDS program.

We are proud to support Teach For America because of the leadership of our corps members and alumni in New Jersey and in high-need communities around the country. Teach for America is providing the raw material to improve education in the form of great teachers which often become school leaders. We believe that educational opportunity is the foundation of the American dream and a fundamental necessity to ensure the continued strength of our great country.

- Alan and Jennifer Fournier


Teach For America - New Jersey is so grateful for our supporters. All gifts help our effort to recruit, select, train, and support excellent teachers and leaders for New Jersey students.
