Kids need us now more than ever.

Young people are experiencing a world of uncertainty as they navigate the impact of COVID-19. Fifty-five million school children have been impacted by school closures and need our help, especially the 12 million who do not have internet access in the United States.

The FOURWARD Fund will support youth across all communities, with or without internet access, to ensure all kids have access to the necessary resources and meaningful learning opportunities as the crisis grows.
