Math and Charitable Giving: The Perfect Sum

Renewal HS, donation, Think Through MathOn any given day, at any given hour, somewhere in America a student is completing a math lesson on Imagine Math (formerly Think Through Math).

But math isn’t the only problem they’re helping to solve.

Ask any math teacher: math can solve real-life problems. Need to balance your checkbook? That’s a math solution. Building a house? You need math skills to ensure a sound construction.

And if you’re donating to a good cause, math helps you calculate the bottom line and deliver the goods as promised. Read more »

Imagine Learning Gives Back in 2016 – Holiday Edition

Every day, caring educators give their all to help kids everywhere succeed, learn, and grow. At Imagine Learning, we enjoy helping educators do all three of these things.

But what about kids in the local community–particularly during the holidays? Here’s our report for late 2016:

Startup Santa, United Way, aquarium book box, Imagine Learning

Aquarium book box

Startup Santa

During November and early December of 2016, Imagine Learning employees gathered 1,138 books (some new, some gently used) to donate to United Way’s “Startup Santa” project.

As part of the fun, employees were invited to decorate a box of books. Ours went swimmingly, as you can see!

Stansbury Elementary

Each December, Imagine Learning employees give back to disadvantaged kids who otherwise might not get holiday gifts.

For example, Stansbury Elementary (Salt Lake City, UT) welcomes many low-income students through its doors daily. Because of donations from Imagine Learning employees, 70 Stansbury students were able to have a happy holiday season in 2016. And we look forward to helping again in 2017!

Sponsored Families

The holiday season was also a little brighter for 15 other Utah children in four families, thanks to several of our Imagine elves who gathered clothing items, toys, and books for each child on the list. In some cases, employees purchased more than one gift for these kids–and some offered cash donations.

We love and appreciate our generous Imagine Learning team for all they do to help children and families each year. Happy New Year!
