Giving to the College Board
The College Board strives to ensure that every student has the opportunity to prepare for, enroll in and graduate from college. Gifts and grants to the College Board help both educators and students reach their full potential, making college a possibility for everyone. For the millions of students we empower, for the teachers and educators we support, and for the schools and communities on whose behalf we advocate, the College Board believes that an investment in education is the gateway to a successful future.
- This year, the Office of Development compiled and published the College Board’s first ever annual Philanthropic Stewardship Report. It is with great enthusiasm that we share this publication, as it illustrates the College Board’s philanthropic work in education and highlights the innovative collaborations that made our impact possible. Our recent accomplishments would not have been possible without the generous contributions and partnerships of the dedicated organizations included herein.
- The College Board has released the 9th Annual AP Report to the Nation, an annual report showcasing nationwide Advanced Placement participation and results. In addition to data are profiles of today’s AP experience in classrooms, districts, and universities; strategies for progress; information about redesigned AP Courses and Exams; the College Board’s AP Partnerships; and a close look at how the College Board and its partners are expanding AP opportunity for underserved and minority students.
- The College Board Chinese Guest Teacher Summer Institute (GTSI) has been selected for funding as part of the STARTALK 2013 program in the amount of $99,931. This is the sixth year that the College Board Chinese Language and Culture Initiatives has received an award from STARTALK—one of several National Security Language Initiative (NSLI) programs funded by the National Security Agency, whose mission is to increase the number of Americans learning, speaking, and teaching critical languages.
- The College Board is announcing the AP STEM Access Program, created to increase the number of traditionally underrepresented minority and female high school students who participate in Advanced Placement Program courses in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) disciplines. A $5 million grant from Google as part of its Global Impact Awards to DonorsChoose.org will make it possible for this program to invite over 800 public high schools across the country to start new AP math and science courses and to encourage traditionally underrepresented minority (black/African American, Hispanic/Latino and American Indian/Alaska Native) and female students who demonstrate strong academic potential to enroll and explore these areas of study and related careers.
