Sylvan/Laureate Foundation

Sylvan Laureate Foundation Logo

The mission of the foundation, broadly defined, is to seek and support best practices in education and training throughout the world and to support the communities in which our employees live. The foundation has a strong focus on supporting the community of Baltimore, Maryland, where our company began. The foundation offers support for elementary and secondary schools, institutions of higher learning, education-focused associations and organizations, and programs that provide education and training services for children and adults. As a particular focus, the foundation promotes best practices and principles in teaching, teacher training and professional development for teachers. In striving to achieve its mission, the Sylvan Laureate Foundation aims to be a valuable complement to the many organizations that are dedicated to improving education for students and teachers throughout the world.

In 2014, the foundation provided over $1.4 million to 50 organizations. This builds on the $23 million we have invested through the Sylvan Laureate Foundation since 1997.
