PowerMyLearning and Cy Pres Funding

Cy Pres is a doctrine that permits a court to award any unallocated, unclaimed, or undeliverable funds from a class action settlement or judgment to a non-profit organization.

As a nonprofit organization serving low-income families and high-poverty communities across the country, PowerMyLearning is eligible to receive Cy Pres funding.

PowerMyLearning provides low-income families with the computers, software, and technology training that they need to help their children succeed academically and to become good digital citizens. We address community inequality by partnering with high-poverty schools to provide critical professional development and family engagement services that strengthen the learning relationships among students, teachers, and families. We also serve hundreds of thousands of individuals in all 50 states through our K-12 learning platform, PowerMyLearning Connect, in use in more than 40% of public schools nationwide.
