Coronavirus Response: Keep Kids Learning
When Coronavirus closed schools across the country, teachers needed to get supplies in the hands of students at home to keep them learning, especially in our country’s highest-need communities.
The impact so far
Thank you to all of the generous donors who have supported this program so far: Over 10,000 individuals and our corporate and foundation partners, including Google.org, Bill and Melinda Gates, General Motors, Chevron, 3M, Equitable Foundation, Neukom Family Foundation, Samsung, The Pershing Square Foundation and the Employees of Pershing Square Capital Management, Chris and Crystal Sacca, Theresia Gouw, Reese Witherspoon and the Draper James team, Townsend Press, Lightbay Capital, Horace Mann, Oak Foundation, Burton Family Foundation, Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation, and the Perry and Donna Golkin Family Foundation.
Over 9,000 teachers have already been connected with funding, like Mrs. Akowitz in Michigan:
“My students have been sending me pictures of the packages they’re receiving and have been overjoyed that I am still thinking about them even though we can’t be together. I am in the process of setting up a meeting with all of them so we can read one of the books I sent them together. They can’t wait. Thank you so much for helping me bring some joy to my students while I can’t be with them.”
