Donors Maximize GiveBIG Matching Fund for Computer Science

Thank you for helping change the story.

During GiveBIG on May 9, 2018,  you helped secure $12,500 in matching funds. We thank you, and our challenge match donors, including First Tech Federal Credit Union with a $10,000 matching gift.

With their help and yours, the groundbreaking K-12 Computer Science Initiative is smashing stereotypes about “who can be good at computer science” by providing computer science and critical thinking skills to every Bellevue School District student, starting in kindergarten. By integrating these skills into core curriculum, computer science is becoming a native language for students, opening learning and career pathways to girls and historically underrepresented students who have traditionally fallen through the cracks.

So far:
• BSD teachers have introduced computer science to 6,000 students by embedding it into subjects like math, art, science, language arts, and social studies.
• Materials developed by our educators are made available as free resources-exponentially amplifying the power of your GiveBig gift by enabling districts with fewer resources to benefit from Bellevue’s leading-edge program.

Thank you for transforming education and supporting exceptional learning opportunities for every Bellevue School District student, every day.
