kCura Gives

Our community outreach program works to ensure that youth in our community—especially those with limited resources—have access to the technology, equipment, and training they need to be successful in today’s work environment.

HERE’S HOW

Wired to Learn Grant

We believe every student deserves the opportunity for a great education, and that means every school needs access to the technology that powers today’s world. To help with that, each year we select an under-resourced school and provide $250,000 worth of technology and professional development over a three-year period. Past recipients have reported better attendance, higher test scores, and increased student engagement.

Geek Grant

We donate $2,500 per month to a technological or educational organization nominated by a kCura employee. Since 2012, we have given $30,000 in Geek Grants each year to organizations that support science, technology, engineering, and mathematics initiatives.

While we don’t accept applications for Geek Grants, we are always interested in learning more about what organizations and schools are doing to ensure that youth in our community have access to the technology, equipment, and training they need to be successful in today’s work environment.

Volunteer Program

We provide our team with volunteer opportunities, such as regularly hosting students at the office for coding workshops and career exploration days. Our volunteer opportunity bank makes it easy for our team members to find causes that matter to them, connect with like-minded colleagues, and share volunteer opportunities at their favorite organizations.

We’re invested in the communities where our team members live and work, so we find unique ways to partner with organizations who make a meaningful impact in our neighborhoods.

“The spark you see in students the first time code clicks for them, and when they really understand they have the power to control a computer through programming, is rewarding beyond words. Having the opportunity through kCura Gives to engage the community during Hour of Code—and experience moments like these—motivates me every day to do more.”

Christian Clouston, kCura

“kCura was the first organization to believe in us. They provided our first real source of funding, which not only helped us get up and running, but allowed our students to experience field trips that they still talk about to this day.”

January Miller, EMBARC

“Over 90 percent of our clients at La Casa Norte live at or below the federal poverty line. Because of the Geek Grant, we are able to offer access to computers and the Internet so our clients can do their homework, research jobs, prep for GEDs, and explore college options. The Geek Grant is helping us bridge the digital divide our clients face.”
