Teacher and Kids Hugging

Visions loves educators for all the passion they put into their jobs.

We also understand that most put a lot of their own money into their classrooms. In fact, it’s estimated that educators pay an average of about $450 out-of-pocket for items not covered by the school budget.

That’s why we created the Visions Loves Educators Classroom Program.

Visions will award full funding to projects submitted by educators at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. We’ve committed $10,000 to the program, so multiple projects may win!

Our educators give so much to their kids and our communities. This is just one small way we can give back to them.


Visions loves all educators! But, only classrooms in the communities we serve are eligible at this time.
