A World Where  Education is Available for All

Equal Learning Fund staff and volunteers work to provide educational awareness, funding, and supplies to children most in need of additional support.

Providing Funding, Supplies, and Program Support to Students Most in Need

Research indicates that children from low socioeconomic households or communities and who have less access to technology and programs are more vulnerable to adverse impacts affecting students’ academic progress and outcomes. At Equal Learning Fund, we strive to bridge that gap to help ensure that every child has an equal opportunity for learning.

Equal Learning Fund is an impartial organization that promotes fairness for all children who need additional assistance.

Mission Statement

Equal Learning Fund believes that every child should have an equal opportunity for education regardless of socioeconomic status. We provide educational funds, school supplies, and program support to those most in need so that every child can have a chance at a great future.
