Educurious is extremely grateful to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for their generous funding. We are pleased to be the recipient of two grants, the first for proof-of-concept of our innovative model and the second for substantive research and development to create our next generation high school solutions.

Educurious thanks the Washington Women's Foundation for their Merit Award in support of our goal to create the education that our students and our country need to thrive. The mission of Washington Women’s Foundation is to educate and expand the number of women engaged in philanthropy, and to build and strengthen community through individual and large impact grants. The Foundation’s members, now more than 500 strong, have invested $13 million of their own resources in nonprofit organizations in the last 18 years.
Educurious appreciates the generosity of the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation in providing a grant to continue our work to foster collaboration among students, teachers, and experts through our Expert Network. Among its areas of interest, the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation invests in reform efforts within and outside of U.S. school systems that improve educational opportunities and outcomes for all students. By investing in the education reform movement and its leaders, the Foundation does its part to better prepare today’s learners to be tomorrow’s qualified workforce and engaged citizens.
Educurious is actively seeking funders and partners to help us in creating more opportunities for today’s students so they can become tomorrow's leaders. Join our cause.
