2018 Giving Tuesday


Too many of our students are experiencing unhealthy academic and psychological stress living in communities that are anchored in a narrow definition of success. The overemphasis on performance — grades, test scores, college admissions — has stressed out some students and marginalized many more.

We can do better for our kids.

Challenge Success partners with schools to implement policies and practices that prioritize both academic engagement and student well-being – two sides of the same coin and both essential to creating a strong school environment.

This #GivingTuesday, join us and invest in our youth. We have a big goal of reaching 2,000 schools by 2022. A donation of any amount will assist this effort.

With your financial support, we can create environments where kids thrive and ​are encouraged to define success on their terms.​

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.
