Here at the Edcamp Foundation, we are all about promoting organic, participant-driven professional development for K-12 educators worldwide. Our mission: to support free edcamp unconferences for educators to exchange ideas and learn together. We’ve been thrilled to support several edcamps across the country this year. Imagine our surprise when Edcamp OC LA sent *US* a generous donation of their leftover funds. Here’s the message we received from EdcampOCLA co-organizer Bill Selak:
Rather than being a single event in Los Angeles, we wanted to connect with other groups of passionate educators that are planning Edcamps. Our donation to The Edcamp Foundation is a simple way that we can financially support this movement.
More info about the process:
After EdcampOCLA, we had a bit of extra money. We donated to the PTA of the hosting school. We all agreed pretty quickly that the remainder should go to the Edcamp Foundation to help with future Edcamps.
Hope that helps!
Thanks, Bill, yes it will – most definitely!
We’re happy to help!
