The vision of Project Tomorrow is to ensure that today’s students are well prepared to be tomorrow’s innovators, leaders and engaged citizens of the world. We believe that by supporting the innovative uses of science, math and technology resources in our K-12 schools and communities, students will develop the critical thinking, problem solving and creativity skills needed to compete and thrive in the 21st century. We approach our mission through national research projects, the replication of model excellence projects in schools and communities, online tools and resources for students, teachers and parents, and national and regional advocacy efforts.
Project Tomorrow is governed by a dedicated and thoughtful national Board of Directors who bring to our organization a variety of strengths and resources from the business, education, youth development, scientific, public policy and media sectors.
Project Tomorrow is a national education nonprofit organization, certified by the IRS and the State of California as a 501.c.3 nonprofit organization, with a 24 year history of impacting education. In September 2005, NetDay, a national education technology nonprofit group, merged with a regional science education nonprofit to create the new Project Tomorrow.
Funding the Mission
Project Tomorrow’s funding includes a mix of foundation grants, federal funding, corporate sponsorship and revenue derived from our evaluation projects. Over 85% of our annual income is used to directly impact children and schools, and for our investors (including private and public foundations).
We are very effective in terms of partnership development and leverage collaborations to help us with promoting our services and programs. We are incredibly frugal with our overhead expenses so as to ensure that the philanthropic dollars that are granted to us directly address our mission. In fact, we are well recognized within our sector for the quality and depth of our work given a small operating budget; this is a reflection of working smart, being a good partner, and managing our programs very effectively.
