Thomas R. Brown Foundation

Free K-12 Professional Development
Programs focus on economics, personal finance, and the ways those disciplines overlap with other subjects including mathematics, history, and civics.

The Thomas R. Brown Foundation seeks to advance the use of economic principles in public and private decision making through strategic partnerships and educational programs. Our program goal is to equip teachers to increase student exposure to fundamental principles of economics in a neutral and nonpartisan way, and to help students develop an appreciation of how economic analysis applies to everyday choices as well as business and policy issues.
