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 committed to driving equitable outcomes for students, teachers, and families nationwide, PowerMyLearning is eligible to receive Cy Pres funding.
PowerMyLearning’s products and programs accelerate educational success for all students so that we can help reverse our country’s systematic denial of educational opportunity based on race, class, and learning differences. We address community inequality by partnering with schools to provide critical professional development and family engagement services that strengthen the triangle of learning relationships between students, teachers, and families.
