  • Mission:
  • SINCE 1979, THE CLASSROOM ENRICHMENT PROGRAM HAS PARTNERED WITH TEACHERS AND STUDENTS TO BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN CLASSROOMS AND THE REAL WORLD, USING RELEVANT INFORMATION FROM THE TIMES UNION DAILY NEWSPAPER, TOGETHER WITH CURRICULUMAN SPECIFIC TO ENHANCE THEIR KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING. The Times Union, together with curriculum developed to enhance the knowledge and understanding for 21st Century Education, has been a leading force in helping in local classrooms engage students with useful data, tools and experts students will encounter in college, on the job and in life.

  • History:
  • The Times Union, (circulation 75,000 daily; 150,000 Sunday) is a unit of the Hearst Corporation. The Times Union began distributing newspapers to classrooms as a teaching tool in 1979. The Classroom Enrichment program has tremendous executive support and a significant financial investment from the Times Union organization.
    The Classroom Enrichment Fund was established within the COMMUNITY FOUNDATION FOR THE CAPITAL REGION (CFCR) (certified 501 C 3) in 1996. Through this partnership donors are able to benefit the tax advantages. Additionally, the CFCR disperses funds upon request to underwrite the cost of newspaper distribution for teachers and students. All other costs, approximately 40% above and beyond half the cost of the newspaper, including administrative, training, promotional and curriculum expenses are absorbed by the Times Union.
