Code.org believes that in today’s world, basic computer science and coding skills are fundamental pillars of education, on par with biology, mathematics, and chemistry. And they’re out to make a change in our schools.
The nonprofit organization was founded in 2013 by Hadi and Ali Partovi, who grew up in post-revolutionary Iran before moving to the United States as teenagers. They were some of the lucky few who had access to a Commodore 64 while growing up, which sparked a passion for computer programming. From their humble beginnings, Code.org’s founders used their self-taught programming skills to pay their way through college and separately, they each founded incredibly successful startups.
Donations to Code.org provide in-person computer science training for teachers, and help build computer science curriculums for schools around the country. Code.org needs help from supporters like you to achieve their goal of improving education for 100 million students. Your donations will give the next generation the tools to thrive in our technology-dependent society.
