Support STEM Education for 1000 Bay Area Children



The National Science Foundation estimates that 80% of American jobs created in the next decade will require math and science skills. For low-income children, not having school supplies is a key barrier to learning these skills. How do you learn Geometry if you can't afford a ruler, compass, or protractor? You can support STEM education, and help low-income children start school off on the right foot by supplying the tools they need to succeed in the classroom and beyond.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In the 7 counties served by the Family Giving Tree, more than 388,000 students qualify for the Federal Free Meal Program. For a family of 4 to qualify, their annual income must be below $30,615. Eligible families struggle to provide the supplies their children need in the classroom. Their primary financial concerns are food, housing, & clothing. Starting school without supplies seriously impacts learning, particularly in STEM subjects.

How will this project solve this problem?

When students are prepared for school with the materials they need to succeed in the classroom, it has a positive impact on their learning.

Potential Long Term Impact

Education is a key to breaking the cycle of poverty. With 80% of U.S. jobs created in the next decade requiring math and science skills, sending children to school prepared with backpacks and supplies will equip tomorrow's workforce with the skills they need to succeed.
