Honoring her love of teaching and learning
Following Zoo-phonics® Author/Illustrator Irene’s death, her family established the Irene Clark Early-Childhood Education Fund as a celebration of her life and as a tribute to the special joy she found in teaching and learning from children, teens and young adults. The goal is to use all contributions to the fund to advance early education through Zoo-phonics® and the Safari Learning® Academy by providing funding for:
- Educational research
- Scholarships for disadvantaged children who would benefit from attending the academy
Once a year, Irene’s daughters will work with the staff of Zoo-phonics® and Safari Learning® Academy to carefully consider requests for Zoo-phonics® research funding and/or scholarships to the academy. Together they will evaluate and prioritize those requests, and will distribute 100 percent of all contributions received to date. We appreciate your contribution in Irene’s memory, which will help Zoo-phonics® and the Academy continue to “Teach the World to Read.” Thank you!
Please contact us at 800.622.8104 to make your contribution or send your check, payable to Safari Learning® Trust Account, to Zoo-phonics®, Inc. 20950 Ferretti Rd. Groveland, CA 95321, USA.
