We’re so excited to share that Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan, John and Ann Doerr, and Rich Barton generously donated over $1 million to our campaign in support of computer science. Wow. We’re now close to becoming the largest campaign in Indiegogo history! Read about it in TechCrunch.

Watch Mark Zuckerberg talk about his passion for giving every young person the chance to learn computer science. If you agree with his message, share it!

We hope to introduce 100 million students worldwide to one hour of computer science. Beyond that, we’ll help millions to continue learning — online, or in schools where we’ll establish permanent courses and train teachers.

Your donation will be matched,
dollar-for-dollar

90% of schools still don't teach computer science
In the 21st century. Our schools teach kids how to dissect a frog and how weather works. Today, it's equally fundamental to learn to "dissect an app," or how the Internet works. Every young person deserves basic knowledge of how the world works around them and how to build technology that’s changing the world.

What we need

Our goal this year is to train 10,000 computer science teachers, and to get 100 million students to try one Hour of Code, across all grades, worldwide. We need $5 million to do this.

Why do we need this money?

We’ve built fantastic courses that students and teachers love, but we need your help to bring these courses to more classrooms. Your support will provide in-person training for teachers and allow them to add computer science to the course schedule.

Among nonprofits, Code.org is incredibly cost-effective. We have low administrative costs (<10%). Besides, all of our administrative costs are already covered by existing donors. So are the costs of creating our fantastic tutorials.

So, every dollar you donate will be used only on expanding access to computer science, by putting courses in schools that don’t teach it already.

 

Beyond money— we need your help spreading the word

At its heart, the Hour of Code is a grassroots movement driven by parents, teachers and students who want computer science in schools. Whether you donate to our campaign or not, you can still help make history. Anyone, anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event. One-hour tutorials are available in over 30 languages. No experience needed. Ages 4 to 104.

Ways you can help:

  • Ask your local school to organize an Hour of Code. Share this video, handout, or sample email.

  • Spread the word about the #HourOfCode on Facebook orTwitter.

  • Recruit a local group — boy scouts club, church, university, veterans group or labor union. Or host an Hour of Code "block party" for your neighborhood.

  • Amazon.com customers: Do your shopping at smile.amazon.com to donate a % of all purchases to Code.org

  • Stay connected. Follow Code.org on Facebook and on Twitter to stay up-to-date on the Hour of Code movement.


Recognizing your generosity. Thank you!

The work we do touches students’ lives in a meaningful way. Watch this young girl’s reaction to trying the Hour of Code in her school. Every dollar you give will touch one student, who will learn about your support. We thank you, and so do the students
