We know that education can open doors – to new opportunities, a better job and a better life. A passion for giving back is simply part of the Kaplan culture.
The Kaplan Educational Foundation Through the Kaplan Educational Foundation's Leadership Program, we serve talented community college students who have the potential to become influential in their communities and professions. The Foundation's comprehensive, multi-year commitment to each student includes scholarships, academic advising, tutoring, leadership development, career counseling and other resources needed to help them complete their associate's degrees and continue their studies at competitive four-year universities.
Students in the program have already transferred to schools including American University, Morehouse College, Mount Holyoke College and New York University.
The Learning By Giving Foundation Kaplan is also proud to support The Learning By Giving Foundation, which shares our mission to give back to local communities. The Foundation, started and funded by Warren Buffett's sister Doris, offers the first-ever free online course on effective charitable giving. When registering for the course, students have the opportunity to submit grant nominations on behalf of charities in their communities they feel deserve the Foundation's money. After a peer review, charities with the highest scores are awarded the grants. The course is open to the public; for more information visit www.learningbygivingfoundation.org.
