the big picture.

Every tax-deductible dollar you donate speeds along the benefits of extending comprehensive Emotional Intelligence (EQ) life skills learning into all schools, not just the 25% that currently provide it.

Your support also helps ensure that this and future generations of children don’t replicate past pain and mistakes resulting from low EQ, individually and societally.

Donations primarily support both the marketing costs of our sorely-needed national EQuip Our Kids! mobilization campaign targeted at parents and businesses, as well as the capacity building support we provide for the national Social and Emotional Learning Alliance For The U.S, comprised of 20 state SEL Alliances with more than 10,000 educator members.

your donation also allows us to...

  • Continue our social-media and ad campaign targeting parent awareness.
  • Promote and deliver our free Parent and Children Emotional Health Toolkit along with relevant information about at-home and in-school SEL training.
  • Promote major companies to support this crucial learning as effectively as they have STEM learning in all schools.
  • Promote major foundations to support the SEL movement locally and nationally.
  • Provide media resources to SEL educational organizations.

We do not create nor sell EQ or SEL learning tools and programs – a great number of small businesses and nonprofits independent of us do. They largely operate without the capacity to inform and engage parents and the public. Our pro-bono work supports their and SEL educator’s need for public awareness and grassroots support.  . 

EQuip Our Kids! was started by four business leaders with a history of philanthropy targeted at youth development and who support SEL for its remarkable benefits to children, schools, economic development and community uplift. None of the founders or current strategic board members have investments in SEL education programs.
