The Foundation for Impact on Literacy and Learning (now known as FILL) was founded as a public charity with the mission to bring excellent programming to educators and students nationally.

For years, the foundation has continued to reach millions of students with robust programming ranging from financial literacy, global citizenship, STEM, leadership, literacy and more. Donors are major corporations, financial institutions, government agencies and public and private charities. These include Yum Brands, Allstate Foundation, ConAgra, Office Depot Foundation, Bureau of Engraving and Printing and AT&T Foundation to name a few. Current programming engages students in all 50 states and across the curriculum.

Current Programs


Student Leadership Program

Lead4Change is designed to encourage middle and high school students to hone leadership skills by completing a service-learning project that addresses a need in their community or school. Currently the leading and fastest-growing leadership program, Lead4Change has more than 13,000 participating educators and has been real-world tested by 1.8 million students since 2012.

Panasonic Corporation of North America

Student Eco Citizenship Program

The Panasonic Eco-Citizenship Program inspires students in grades 5-8 to explore environmental issues. They complete research and determine what can be done to positively impact their local environment, create an environmental action plan and determine how to act on their plans. Panasonic North America has provided funding for this exciting program for many years. This program is provided to schools at no-cost.

Get Involved 

FILL supports and builds alliances that enhance innovative, instructional programs and community engagement by providing the resources to promote learning opportunities. We welcome participation in efforts to engage, enlighten and inspire today’s students and educators by opening their classrooms to the world. 

The foundation seeks funding from non profits, private companies and organizations to help provide educational cross-curricular programs for elementary and secondary schools. We have successfully developed and executed project based learning programs to integrate classroom learning with real world experience. We are ready to work with you, let’s start a conversation.

Student Programs Making an Impact

We join with our donors to create and implement exciting educational resources for schools. Students practice literacy and learn by doing research and working on projects collaboratively.

Positive Impact in The Classroom

Students across the United States have participated in exciting programs provided by our donors for almost two decades. Thousand of educators have used our resources to enhance their curricula in areas such as STEM, environmental studies, financial literacy, civic awareness, social and emotional learning, leadership and more. 

Many of the programs we create include Project Based Learning elements that prepare students with the life skills that they will need for the future.

“As the adult leader, the Lead4Change experience helped me to align community service projects to direct outcomes and ensure my students are focused on the learning objectives."

“We had a great learning experience. What’s really neat to see it the impact the lessons, research, and learning has had on the students. They are interested in more, as well as they continue to share what they did at home that was more environmentally friendly.”


– Panasonic Student Eco Citizenship Program

“We appreciate initiatives such as this that aid our students in understanding the world is bigger than their immediate surroundings. It is also a wonderful example to our students that there are caring individuals and companies that are willing to invest in the future by presenting opportunities such as these.”
