InvestED is a 501(c)(3) public charity. Our Tax ID is 23-7189670.
InvestED is a statewide education nonprofit that provides immediate help for students in need. For nearly 60 years, we have been helping low-income students across Washington “Get to School, Engage in School, and Graduate”. Our funding helps bridge the gap between what families can afford, what public schools can support, and what students urgently need to achieve. ALL WITH NO RED TAPE.
Our model is simple but powerful. Through close partnerships with nearly 700 secondary schools, we trust local educators to make the decisions about how our funds are best used to support their children. They are empowered to use our funds to immediately and discretely cover critical costs for students such as ASB cards and technology; course fees and college application fees; graduation gowns and medical care; basic needs like warm coats, shoes, and toiletries; and much more. Over the years, InvestED's model has proven that teachers, counselors, principals and coaches know their students best and understand the unique challenges impacting their respective communities.
InvestED has supported nearly 1 million students since 1963, including more than 500,000 since the COVID-19 pandemic began (thanks to two rapid response partnerships including All In Seattle and All In Washington's Digital Equity Initiative.)
