About EDSITEment: Partners

National Endowment for the Humanities is an independent federal agency established to promote knowledge of human history, thought, and culture. For more than thirty years, educators and students throughout the nation have benefited from NEH grants that create and preserve knowledge, identify and disseminate reliable learning resources, and empower teachers through professional development programs. EDSITEment brings the NEH commitment to excellence in humanities education to the Internet.

National Trust for the Humanities is a non-profit charitable corporation formed in 1996 to support and extend the programs of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

EDSITEment is one of eight educational web sites that participate in the Thinkfinity consortium. Thinkfinity's mission is to create premier, standards-based Internet content for use in the K-12 classroom —all free of charge—and to provide the requisite professional development to teachers in the United States.

As one of the premier Thinkfinity consortium partners, EDSITEment produces original content, links to top panel-reviewed web sites, a search engine, and rich supplemental resources across multiple disciplines. EDSITEment works with the other consortium partners to set common quality guidelines, share best practices and technology innovations, and create cross-disciplinary educational experiences. 

Verizon Foundation is an active contributor to the Thinkfinity program, providing staff, technical support, state grants, consortium funding, and guidance on the overall direction of the Thinkfinity project.
