In support of higher standards

Roughly a quarter of American children fail to finish high school on time. That translates to nearly one million young people left behind, every year.

Your generous donation to Stand for Children helps to improve the odds for students by:

  • Empowering parents, teachers, and community members to demand an excellent education for every child – from preschool to high school
  • Organizing our members and supporters to advocate for proven education policies and smart investments
  • Ensuring the policies and investments we advocate for make it to the classroom
