SUPPORT US

It takes a lot of support to empower young minds and inspire the next generation of engineers. With your help, we can accomplish our mission of delivering engaging and impactful science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) programs to youth. By partnering with us, you contribute to creating accessible and inclusive STEAM education experiences that ignite curiosity and foster a passion for learning.

Geering Up has a diverse network of funding partners; from private sector entities and foundations to generous individuals and government agencies, our funders offer more than just financial backing. Because our partners understand that today’s youths are the innovators and engineers of the future, they contribute their time and expertise to amplify the impact of our funding pool.

Would you like to be a part of our mission to provide engaging and meaningful STEAM programs to young learners? Here is your chance to enable incoming generations of changemakers to acquire future-proofing skills and access the tools and resources they need to thrive. A donation supports Geering Up’s staff team that keeps us in operation, the young students we teach and mentor, the parents who come to us for resources and training, and the community of partners who help us accomplish our vision. You’ll be supporting our team in creating up-to-date, relevant, fun, and hands-on activities and events, and bringing our programs directly to those who need equitable access to STEAM education.

We’re thankful for our supporters, as we require your financial backing to foster an inclusive learning environment and bridge the existing gaps that keep many youths from accessing the education they need to be critical thinkers, engineers, and innovators. Together, we’re making a lasting impact as we keep shaping a diverse and inclusive future for STEAM.
