Children’s Media and Education Challenge

Giving Primer

WGBH reaches millions of young people annually through engaging and interactive award-winning content across all platforms. As a public media producer with immense reach, WGBH is uniquely situated to increase access to quality educational programming and resources for all children in grades K-12, particularly those in rural or otherwise underserved communities. Through both popular media and community and classroom learning media, all programs and initiatives are designed to be educational with specific learning outcomes. Key areas of focus are equity, STEM and the power of the arts in STEM education, and the development of socio-emotional skills.

A generous donor has put forth a $250,000 lead challenge gift in support of WGBH’s Children's Media and Education efforts. This gift will be made available when $500,000 has been raised or pledged from other donors, for a total raised of $750,000. The challenge deadline is June 30, 2021 and pledges may be paid over five years. Support for this challenge will help provide the capital needed to invest in the most valuable asset: our nation’s youth. There has never been a better time to help shape our collective future and support WGBH’s efforts around equity and access in education.
