The New York City Foundation for Computer Science Education (CSNYC) is a nonprofit organization launched in 2013 to ensure that all NYC public school children have access to computer science education that will put them on a pathway to academic success and a 21st century career.
This holiday season, we are asking for your support of our partner schools, the Academy for Software Engineering (AFSE) and the Bronx Academy for Software Engineering (BASE). These schools are serving a combined 600+ students in 9th, 10th and 11th grade. The amazing students, top notch educators and school leadership will all benefit from your donation!
You decide where your contribution goes. Every littble gift helps, so feel free to enter your own amount.
