Collaboration is critical to our success fighting digital inequity issues like student access to technology. That's why we partnered with Teach For America in May of 2020.

Techbridge Girls is re-engineering how STEM education is taught so girls* are inspired and prepared to persist toward their STEM aspirations, and empowered to achieve better life chances.

The 49ers EDU Digital Playbook is a wonderful collection of STEAM education lessons that use the game of football to teach topics like physics, engineering, geometry, reading comprehension, and more – challenging students to think creatively.

The IRC responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people whose lives are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover and gain control of their future.

This donation was also vital to the IRC's ability to stay connected with these families during the pandemic.
