The Heising-Simons Foundation is a family foundation based in Los Altos and San Francisco, California, working to “advance sustainable solutions in climate and clean energy, enable groundbreaking research in science, enhance the education of our youngest learners, and support human rights for all people.”

The Heising-Simons Foundation funds projects throughout the United States in the areas of climate and clean energy, community and opportunity, education, human rights, and science. Since its inception, Heising-Simons has awarded more than $450 million in grants to projects in these fields.

EDC received a Heising-Simons Foundation grant in 2015 for the Family Engagement in Early Math project. Since then, we have been privileged to receive further funding for a number of projects involving early math education. Most recently, we’ve begun work on Young Mathematicians in Worcester: Promoting a Family Math Learning Community, a two-year project working with a community partner to develop and spread an innovative and promising model of family math.

We thank the Heising-Simons Foundation for their support and look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.
