KIPP Philadelphia Schools currently operate 1 elementary school, 2 middle schools and 1 high school. Despite the fact that students there consistently enter schools 2-3 grade levels behind, by providing the learning and tools they need, 100% of their students have been accepted to college-preparatory high schools.
Over 275 charter public schools operate in Texas, serving over 80,000 students. Most of these charter schools operate in urban or inner-city areas, where many children have long been denied quality education.
At the KIPP Inspire Academy in St. Louis, 240 students are enrolled in an intensive, college-preparatory program to put them on the path to some of the nation's best high schools, colleges, and universities.
KIPP Jacksonville believes that 5th grade is a critical turning point in a child’s education. At this point, most students in the public schools here have already fallen behind – but with KIPP’s help, they can still catch up and be put on the path to college.
Thanks to GlobalGiving and fans like you, we are able to provide thousands of underserved students with resources like books, lunches and school supplies to put them on the path towards a brighter future. Feels pretty amazing, doesn't it?
For every video view we received between July 1st and August 31st, the Neutrogena® Wave for Change® program donated $1 to GlobalGiving to support educational charities within the United States. We also donated $1 from the sale of participating products during the same time*. The result was a donation of $125,000*, which will be split equally between the three charities!
*Neutrogena pledged to donate $1 to GlobalGiving for every video view, up to $130,000, and $1 for every product registered, up to $20,000, between 7/1/2012 and 8/31/2012.

Education Through Music
"We believe that music enhances the life of every child and helps reinforce academic achievement, creativity and overall development."
– VICTORIA LANIER, Executive Director Education Through Music LA
Every child deserves a well-rounded education: one that includes music. ETM forms long-term partnerships with inner-city elementary and middle schools that lack the resources to develop school-wide music programs. They ensure high-quality instruction by hiring qualified music teachers and provide music instruction to every child, regardless of talent or ability.
