2017 Giving Tuesday



What if … communities rejected Kevin’s narrow definition of success?

What if … achievement wasn’t solely based on test scores and grades?

What if … kids pursued activities for joy and interest rather than for college applications?

What if … parents didn’t fear that their kids would be left behind in our high-pressure world?

What if … all students felt supported by teachers?

What if … all kids felt engaged and excited by learning?

What if … we embraced a broader definition of success to improve the social, emotional, and physical well-being of our kids?

What if every school had Challenge Success?

Every day we work toward this vision. We need your help to turn these “what-ifs” into a new reality. There are too many communities where Kevin’s narrow definition of success is still prevalent (see video below).

A gift of $50, or any amount that’s right for you, will help us reach more communities and foster environments where kids are encouraged to define success on their terms, based on their interests and not solely on their test scores and grades.

We believe we can shift the culture and expand the definition of success with your partnership and support. Together, let’s show our kids what we truly value.


Challenge Success is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your gift to Challenge Success is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Our tax ID# is 45-3767261.
Please note that while we are affiliated with Stanford University’s Graduate School of Education, we receive no direct funding from Stanford, and the education reform efforts that we promote are often overlooked by common funding mechanisms such as foundation grants. In fact, nearly 50% of our operating budget is met through individual donations, and as such, we are extremely grateful for this support.
