You are redefining education in the St. Louis area. With your generous giving, we are connecting with more schools, inspiring more teacher leaders and empowering more students with the resources they need to succeed. Your contribution goes right to work toward empowering teachers and school leaders in the St. Louis region to inspire the next generation of scientists and innovators.

Here are just a few examples of what your support can do:
$50 or more supports “Hot Topic” events for educators to stay abreast of the newest research in science, math and technology.
$100 or more provides an opportunity for an under-resourced school to visit Washington University’s campus to explore university life.
$500 or more provides loaner computers, devices and 3-D printers for classrooms that do not have access to current technology.
$1,000 or more provides for significant classroom support for science, math and engineering supplies and professional development for a teacher in a named district.
$5,000 or more provides a scholarship for a high-needs school district to develop an overall STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) integration plan for their district.
$10,000 or more provides a transformational leadership coach to a local school district.
