  • Orton National Scholarship Fund For Teachers - To provide structured, evidence-based reading instruction training for public school teachers in Grades 1-12.

  • Learning Differences Field Fund - To support activities in the LD Field to maintain, increase, and transfer its expertise to all teachers and students.

  • Exploratory Grants - Make venture grants to nonprofit organizations that need start-up funding, or that are designing new or innovative programs.
