We support a wide range of grantees who are engaged with advancing our understanding of the inquiry questions that underpin our research. We also support a diverse range of grantee work, from academic research projects, to workforce upskilling programs, to teach professional development. Learn more about the work we’re doing with each of our grantees below.
THE SCRATCH FOUNDATION
David Siegel co-founded the Scratch Foundation in 2013 with Scratch’s creator, Mitch Resnick, so that there would be an organization that could sustainably support Scratch’s continued growth as a platform for creative coding, interactive community, and self-expression. David has been a champion for Scratch as a way for young learners to express themselves creatively using code, and sees it as an unparalleled tool for teaching computational thinking skills in a creative way.
THE CENTER ON RURAL INNOVATION
Siegel Family Endowment supports the Center on Rural Innovation’s (CORI) work on mapping opportunities for economic advancement and inclusive wealth creation in often-overlooked rural settings. We’ve partnered with CORI on scaling their efforts to bring digital economy jobs to small town America, and to close the rural opportunity gap.
Siegel Family Endowment and CSforALL have a close working partnership, wherein SFE provides multifaceted ongoing support that has enabled CSforALL to broaden their focus to cover national systems change, and to act as a convener for the growing community of computer science education leaders. This partnerships affords both organizations the opportunity to pursue their independent missions while creating space for close collaboration in the areas where our visions overlap.
