The Learning + Technology Fund

NYC students living in poverty do not have sufficient access to an education that meets their needs, unlocks their potential, and prepares them for the global knowledge economy.

The Robin Hood Learning + Technology Fund is a $50 million initiative informed by leading thinkers in tech and education to use technology to transform learning so that all students are prepared to succeed in a rapidly changing world.

The Fund is a partnership with the Overdeck Family Foundation and Siegel Family Endowment to unlock the power of technology to  drive innovation for learning.
