The Learners Lab Foundation ... A PUBLIC FOUNDATION & FISCAL SPONSOR 

The Learners Lab Foundation, is a public foundation headquartered in Lanham, Maryland, staffed with volunteers. We operate a Technical Assistance Service Center (TASC) for existing tax exempts, design & manage a portfolio of Charitable Workforce Training Programs, and serve as a Fiscal Sponsor for young 501c3 start-ups as well as future tax exempt entities. The Foundation's operations will be centralized as both a virtual and brick-n-mortar facility, with open-access to individuals, groups, and employers nationwide.

The Foundation also awards a range of Non-Monetary Grants & Training Fellowships, and offers Complimentary Memberships & Fiscal Sponsorships as resources permit.

A 15-year dream in the making, The Learners Lab Foundation was originally established in 2002 as a service of and support structure to ED-Lab Online, another charitable endeavor ahead of its time.

Resurrected in 2012 as it own entity, TLLF with the help of volunteers, continues providing free and low cost business, training, and operations services, helping young companies get started, and supporting small, young, or new mom & pop operations. The true goal, however, remains focused on closing resource gaps for tax exempt entities, and eliminating workforce training obstacles that simply should not exist for a 21st century workforce.

Like What You See? Please Join Us, Partners are Priceless!

The Learners Lab Foundation is self funded by its Founder & CEO, and eternally grateful to the Partners and volunteers who make our operations possible. Helping eliminate barriers to training for workers and operational resources for new & young charities is our sole purpose. Whether thru reduced cost, access to materials, providing technology products, or something as simple as time, we appreciate everything we receive. But more is needed, and we can't do it alone. We hope you'll be inspired to Partner with us continue to make a difference for those who need it.

It Takes Money, Too!

Charities and today's workforce, they affect each and every person, community, business, and every dollar spent. Partner with us and help create opportunities that would not happen or could not happen in a timely manner...what could be more rewarding or fulfilling. Your organization will become a Named Partner The Learners Lab Foundation would be proud to say is one of our early, start-up Supporters. Thank you for considering us.

Not sure what type of Partnership to do? No Problem! We have several Partner Relationships you can choose from. For instance, in our Charitable Programs operations, we have OEM Training Vendor Partners, they provide online training resources free or discounted.

We have Operational Partnerships such as our Capital Campaign Partners if you'd like to invest in our planned facility, our Virtual Private Lab/Library (VPL) or TASC Operations. There's also the Corporate Partners if you'd like program develop services from The Foundation or would like to invest in a program The Foundation has already established such as InfoXchange, our Online Newswire for Fiscal Sponsorship Awardees and TASC Clients.

Another goal of our Corporate PartnershipPrograms is Partnering with several organizations to establish The Foundations Math, Science & Technology Center (TLLF/MSTC). It's tag line is Math + Science = Technology, and that's just what we want to show. In this relationship we partner with an employer as an extension of their corporate operation. Its housed at our TLLF/MSTC Facility and includes staff training, new hire onboarding and hands-on tours where the employer show cases how they use science and math innovations in their work. We hope to reveal the endless spectrum of vocational and career choices that result from knowing Math and Science, co-develop mini-training sessions that introduce those career options, and do so all within this one facility. The Foundation intends to demonstrate how Math and Science is used from one company to the next, how Math and Science with other school subjects are used every day, why its important to a career or professional discipline, and how "interdependent" they are on one another.

That too much? Support Fiscal Sponsorships. We have a Fiscal Sponsorship Partners who help us support our Fiscal Sponsorship Awardees and Mentor Partners who help them learn to operate their business or program. We have Fellowship Partners who sponsor and support the Fellowship Program of their choice, and Service Delivery Partnerships which are professionals who register with us to provide programmatic services. Those Partnerships include Trainers & Executive Coaches (TEC), and Business Services (oRAF). So there is no one way to help, unless that's what you prefer!
