Support our goal to provide FREE professional development for teachers from across the nation!

Mount Vernon has a demonstrated commitment to teacher education.  Our professional development programs for K-12 teachers provide a unique, in-residence experience, right on the grounds of this historic estate. It is only here at Mount Vernon that educators can experience George Washington's world first-hand while participating in intensive periods of learning about Washington and 18th-century life, politics, economics, and culture from the nation's premier scholars and Mount Vernon's own experts.

We are giving teachers the tools to engage students in 21st century classrooms in a way that makes learning about Washington's life and legacy fun and memorable. With your help, we hope to offer scholarships so we never have to ask another deserving teacher to pay to participate in this one-of-a-kind experience. Each scholarship granted is $5,000 and your gift today, in any amount, will help sponsor a teacher and in turn, that teacher will go home and inspire a classroom of students to fall in love with America's great history

Our George Washington Teacher Institute increases educators’ awareness and understanding of Washington-related education. Your support will ensure that Mount Vernon’s incredible teaching programs can reach the widest audience available, thus securing Washington’s legacy for future generations to come!
