Thank you for your interest in supporting Cal Teach UCSC!
If you or your organization would like to contribute to the Cal Teach Community, you can donate to the Cal Teach Program or contact the director of the Cal Teach program to talk about your ideas for collaborations.
Private individual donors and foundations help fund our internship program, additional enrichment opportunities for students, and financial support as interns pursue teaching credentials and begin teaching careers.
At present donors can contribute to two funds that support our program: the general program fund and the Edward and Miriam Landesman Fund for Future Teachers of Math or Science. New large donations may fund specific projects — contact Cal Teach any time to discuss.
Donations to the Edward and Miriam Landesman Fund for Future Teachers of Math or Science honor our longtime supporters and former UCSC faculty members Ed and Miriam Landesman. Landesman Fund money is used to reimburse prospective and early career teachers for expenses associated with becoming or being a teacher, like test fees and classroom equipment – typically small dollar amounts that can have a big impact for prospective and early career teachers.
General donations to Cal Teach are used wherever is most needed to sustain or grow the program. These include things like professional development events or internship-related expenses such as TB testing reimbursement, fingerprinting reimbursement and partial reimbursement for travel expense to internship sites not accessible by city bus.
We are grateful for the support and investment in future and novice math and science teachers from many donors.
