We’re forging powerful partnerships to tackle emerging challenges and develop innovative approaches to math education.

pwc_charitablefoundation_logo.pngThrough a $3.2 million multi-year grant from the PwC Charitable Foundation, MIND has pioneered a groundbreaking collaborative technology for teaching financial literacy and the underlying mathematical concepts. According to PwC, less than half of today’s teens are financially literate. Together, we are helping to equip all students with the financial skills to succeed in life. 


Through MIND’s educational programs, Ford Motor Company is creating positive experiences in and outside of the classroom for hundreds of youth and families in Detroit-area school communities. Ford employee volunteers showed up in force for the Family Math Night educational programming.


To help close the achievement gap for at-risk students, build strong communities and enhance the future workforce, the Pitney Bowes Foundation is partnering with MIND to provide transformative mathematical experiences to hundreds of students in the Indianapolis region.
