Each year during the College Football Playoff (CFP), the CFP Foundation selects teaching organizations from the host city to promote. This year, we’re proud to announce they’ve selected Teach Indy as their Indianapolis-based teachers’ association to highlight. We’re incredibly honored to work with such an amazing nonprofit. Funding from the CFP Foundation will support Teach Indy’s efforts to recruit, develop, recognize, and retain high-quality teachers for Indianapolis schools, so we are immensely thankful for the CFP Foundation’s support and promotion.

About the CFP Foundation

The College Football Playoff Foundation is the community-engagement arm of the CFP, supporting PreK-12 education across the country. The nonprofit organization works in partnership with institutions of higher education and envisions a country in which our greatest assets–our teachers–are given the resources, recognition, and professional development they require in order to prepare our nation’s students for success.
