Donate or Fund
m2SE has an existing network of local teachers, and an audience of thousands of Cincinnati-area kids. Sustaining the funding necessary to provide training, materials, and support for our teachers, students, events, and programs is a continuing challenge.
We have delivered high-quality STEM education programs since 1989 (our Data and Outcomes page contains some evidence). The need has not changed. The mission has not changed. Cincinnati-area kids need the opportunity to develop a life-long love for science, technology, engineering, and math. Cincinnati-area businesses need a diverse and well-educated workforce. There is a huge opportunity, and m2SE is well positioned to make a difference. But, of course, we need your help and support.
Individuals can support m2SE in a variety of ways:
- Attend our Annual Luncheon
- Sign up for Amazon Smile via the yellow box on the right-hand side of the page. When you shop via smile.amazon.com 0.5% of your purchases will be donated to m2SE, with no cost to you. Just remember to go to smile.amazon.com, not amazon.com!
- Find out if your employer has a philanthropic program, and connect us or advocate for us
Corporations and Educational Institutions
Corporations and educational institutions often support m2SE by:
- Joining the board, and making small regular tax-deductible donations
- Providing in-kind gifts, such as marketing support, printing, event space
- Purchasing a table for our Annual Luncheon, or contributing a themed gift basket for our annual luxury gift basket raffle. One of the best things you can do for m2SE is to get leaders from your company to attend the luncheon and find out what we are all about
- Educational institutions can also help by hosting/running/funding m2SE events held on their campuses, providing scholarships to m2SE students, or partnering with m2SE on federal grants
Our biggest source of funding comes from corporate charitable foundations associated with Cincinnati-area businesses. These businesses understand that enhancing the diversity of our workforce is not only a social good, but also critical to the economic future of the city. If you know of a grant solicitation that we ought to pursue, please let us know the details via the Contact form.
