NoVo Foundation and SCE pledge multi-year investments

We’re excited to announce two new grants from the NoVo Foundation and SCE. The funding will support reaching more students, teachers, and youth-serving organizations with evidence-based social emotional resources, trainings, and materials.

Research shows that SEL is critical to the success of all kids, especially those from vulnerable communities. Through these grants, we can extend the reach of our program to serve more kids and educators nationwide in proven and innovative ways.

Three-year, $750,000 support from the NoVo Foundation and three-year, $350,000 support from SCE will help fund the next phase of WINGS’ long-term growth and sustainability plan. Over the next fiscal year, WINGS will launch the WINGS Across America Initiative. WINGS Across America will engage teachers, students, and caregivers with evidence-based social emotional resources that are accessible and immediately available. WINGS Across America will make WINGS’ social emotional materials, lesson plans, and activities accessible to millions of students nationwide.

As an organization, we are proud to partner with the NoVo Foundation and SCE, and
are energized to deliver social emotional learning to more students, teachers, and youth-serving organizations.
