DonorsChoose.org is thrilled to have been selected as one of the Motorola Foundation’s 2008 Innovation Generation grantees! This generous grant of $100,000 will be used to match contributions dollar for dollar to K-12 math and science projects posted on our website by teachers in 5 states.
The Motorola Foundation’s Innovation Generation grant program seeks to spark students’ interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and to help develop critical-thinking skills for the long term. Providing $4 million to K-12 programs across the U.S. in 2008, the initiative supports hands-on, innovative after-school programs, science and math clubs, teacher training and mentoring programs.
Since 2000, the Motorola Foundation has contributed more than $35 million to education initiatives with a focus on STEM. For more information on the Innovation Generation grant program, including the full list of 2008 grantees, please visit www.motorola.com/giving.
