TAF (Technology Access Foundation)

A nonprofit organization


TAF builds collaborative relationships with public education to create access to transformative systems of learning for students and teachers of color to eliminate race-based disparities in an increasingly diverse society.

Students are at the center of everything that we do. When we started in 1996 we wanted to ensure that our students received a complete toolkit for success – not just the nuts and bolts from the traditional public education system. This meant focusing on the whole child. Going beyond teaching hard skills like coding and other STEM industry proficiencies to include soft skills like resume-building and interviewing techniques. Over our 26-year history, we’ve grown and expanded, but our student-centered approach still remains. 

You can eliminate barriers to student success

By Giving BIG to TAF, you create access to an equitable education with diverse teachers, real-world problem solving, and the resources and opportunities for students to become leaders and innovators, regardless of socioeconomic background.  

Your gift today makes high-quality public STEM education accessible. For every dollar you give, there is a student that has just discovered their dream career, built their very first 3D printed model, or spent an afternoon soaking in knowledge from an industry expert. The STEMbyTAF model is driven by students who use their own voice to make choices about their learning.  

TAF focuses on creating safe academic spaces where the lived and inherited experiences of students and teachers of color are seen, valued , and heard. We are committed to empowering students to explore the world through equitable learning models. We work with educators who are committed to scholars, providing real-world, culturally relevant problems that students work to solve through project-based learning. Through STEM integration, student-centered learning, and future-focused college & career readiness opportunities, scholars are empowered to imagine, ideate, and create the future they envision for themselves, their communities, and future generations.

This work can't be done without you. Give students the tools they need for a bright future. GiveBIG today!
