Helping Educators and Schools
The Michaels Family Charitable Foundation makes grants to help communities turn schools into places that equip every student for a lifetime of learning.
The Michaels Family
The Michaels Family Charitable Foundation is located in Atlanta, Georgia. It was established in 2005 to improve the quality of education in the Atlanta Area.
Teach On Project
Together, the Michaels family began the first iteration of the Teach On Project – an organization that identifies and celebrates excellent educators in five Metro Atlanta public school districts.
Through the Teach On Project, we have granted over 130 educators $7,500 each: one-third of the money to fund a classroom or school project, one-third to pursue a professional development opportunity, and one-third for the winner’s personal use.
