Your donation makes a difference

Give a dollar for each issue of The Sift®

we sent during the school year. Our newsletter for educators, emailed weekly during the school year, offers recent examples of misinformation and ideas for classroom discussion.

Give a dollar for every state

and the District of Columbia where Checkology® is currently being taught. Our virtual classroom equips educators with the tools to teach students how to evaluate the news and decide what to trust, share and act on.

Give a dollar for each journalist

enrolled in our Newsroom to Classroom program. This platform brings journalists into schools – in person or virtually – to share their knowledge and expertise with students.

Give a dollar for every 1,000 students

who have used Checkology since its launch in 2016 (372,000). In the 2021-2022 school year, we reached over 100,000 students.
