Give 300 Bay Area Students Scientific Calculators

A microproject by The Family Giving Tree
Adrianna thanks you for your generosity!
Adrianna thanks you for your generosity!

           Our 2014 Back-to-School Drive was our most successful to date; 32,866 low-income students received new supply-filled backpacks. In the Silicon Valley, STEM education is an essential factor in the future success of low-income students. As a part of our STEM kits for grades 6 - 12, each student is given a new scientific calculator.

             Adrianna, a seventh grader at Frick Middle School, shares what your donation means to her: "Having supplies and a backpack makes it easier to do my work and I don't feel left out. If I get my supplies late, I do my work late, I turn it in late, and it makes me feel behind." Because of you, students like Adrianna entered the classroom this year confident and prepared to learn. We can't wait to help more students in 2015!

              Even though this microproject is retired and no longer accepting donations, you can still make a difference in the lives of low-income Bay Area children through our project "Support STEM Education for 1000 Bay Area Children".

Your donations add up to help low-income students!

Thanks to your generous support of our Calculators project, we were able to provide a new scientific calculator in backpacks for 20 low-income high school students.

Without tools like the calculators you provided, low-income students fall behind their peers and are ill-prepared for the future. As a part of our overall drive, each high school backpack receives a new scientific calculator as a part of our STEM pack. This pack provides the tools needed for low-income students to participate in STEM subjects such as math and science; preparing them for the future workforce. 

Again, thank you so much for your generosity. Without you, we wouldn’t be able to provide these tools to help break the cycle of poverty.
