Foundations

Sustaining the growth of the global initiative

The GSA is making progress toward its goals of increasing the numbers of students around the world who will enter STEM fields to prepare for careers in science, technology, engineering and math. But we can’t do it alone. The financial support of individuals, corporations, and foundations is critical to moving it forward and sustaining it over the next critical years.

Your support helps the GSA reach and transform the lives of students worldwide, while preparing the brightest minds for careers in STEM. The virtual nature of the GSA’s learning platform allows the GSA to reach those who don’t typically have access to formal education, with a focus on low-income students and those who have been traditionally overlooked and under-represented.

This acceleration of STEM learning will help to solve the global STEM paradox—that, contrary to popular perception, there are enough STEM graduates to meet workforce needs, but they lack the skills that STEM employers are seeking.

The GSA is an international initiative of the New York Academy of Sciences, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with tax-exempt status. Supporting the GSA allows alignment with a global network of prominent scientists and mentors, educators, policymakers, and government officials who are working together in an unprecedented effort to address the challenge of getting more students worldwide to enter STEM fields.

With your support of the GSA, you will be a part of this groundbreaking work to address the most pressing challenges to the global economy and society and drive meaningful, systemic change in society.
