Offering free services to students is not free for us, unfortunately. Costs include paying for our highly-qualified educational instructors, continued curriculum development, supplies (calculators, laptops for online curriculum, textbooks and workbooks, etc.). For every $100 donation, we can help up to 10 kids.

STEM RISE has Target Excellence operating as our fiscal agent. They are a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization, tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Your contributions are tax-deductible to the extent provided by the law. Please send any donations to them.
