RAFT Founded in 1994, RAFT (Resource Area for Teaching) believes hands-on teaching is the best way for our children to learn, so we provide teachers and community groups with creative tools and materials to promote hands-on learning in science, math, technology, and art. Everyday items like computers, office supplies, and manufacturing by-products are donated to RAFT by over 1,000 local businesses and transformed into hands-on learning experiences. In addition to the ideas and materials RAFT supplies to support hands-on learning activities, we also provide professional development classes, workshops, continuing education units, and informal gatherings where members can share their ideas.
Scholarship America Founded in 1958, Scholarship America has distributed more than two billion dollars to nearly two million students. Scholarship America is the nation’s largest private scholarship and educational support organization. Our mission is to mobilize America, through scholarships and educational support, to make postsecondary education possible for all students. Scholarship America programs include Dollars for Scholars, Scholarship Management Services, and ScholarShop, and special initiatives include the Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund, the Learning Communities Initiative, and the Dreamkeepers Emergency Financial Aid program.
AMF is a recommended organization because of its:
- focus on a program with a strong track record and excellent cost-effectiveness (more).
- standout transparency and accountability – it publishes photographs and reports from each of its distributions and has begun requiring the organizations that distribute its nets to follow up in the years following the distribution (more).
- room for more funding – AMF has told us that it can use additional funding to expand its core program and has committed to reporting on how additional funds are used and what results are achieved.
Our review, below, discusses our full assessment of AMF, including what we see as its strengths and weaknesses as well as issues we have yet to resolve.
