Advancing learning outcomes for all children and promoting equity in education.

Happy children smiling at the camera

Helps Education Fund is a nonprofit organization located in North Carolina. Through collaborative partnerships, we provide programs and services that meaningfully advance learning outcomes for students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12. These programs and services are evidence-based, easy to use, and free or low cost.

To promote educational equity, we focus our efforts on partnering with educators and community organizations that serve a high percentage of students who are economically disadvantaged and/or perform below adequate levels in core academic skills.

Helps Education Fund is committed to improving educational equity because inequitable education contributes to systems of oppression, poverty, and other undesirable circumstances that unfairly harm individuals, communities, and a collective society.

Although Helps Education Fund is based in the United States, we support communities and educators throughout the world.

Who we partner with:

  • Individuals such as teachers, parents, university researchers, and any other community members who want to improve students’ education
  • Leaders working within schools, school districts, after-school programs, summer learning programs, educational nonprofits, and any organization that strives to improve student learning

What we value:

  • Equity in
    Education

  • Authentic Collaboration

  • Evidence for Effectiveness

  • Accessibility

  • Merging Research with Practice
