The Algebra Project, Inc.
Our math education reform strategy for public schools marries insights from the Civil Rights organizing traditions and the appearance of math literacy on par with reading and writing literacy caused by the shift from industrial to information age technologies. In the public arena we raise the issue of math literacy as a constitutional right and within a nucleus of young minority students the issue of math literacy as knowledge work. This 21st century technological shift pushes mathematics literacy to the forefront of the literacies required for citizenship in democratic countries. It injects into this technological era the creation at the grassroots level of a demand for change among the people most debilitated by the current arrangements.

Boston Arts Academy Foundation Inc
The Boston Arts Academy Foundation (BAAF) raises essential funds for Boston Arts Academy, Boston's only public high school for the arts. BAAF raises 35% of the school's budget to pay for the arts teachers, programming, and student wellness initiatives not covered by the school district. Without this support, our city's young people, living in one of the cultural capitals of the world, would not be able to attend a public arts high school. Boston Arts Academy (BAA) provides Boston's low-income students with access to an arts and academic education not otherwise available to them. BAA prepares a diverse community of aspiring artist-scholars to be successful in their college or professional careers and to be engaged members of a democratic society. Students of all levels of academic ability attend BAA through our academic-blind admissions process. An average of 94% of BAA graduates are accepted to college - most the first in their families to do so.
