As an operating 501(c)3 The Keren Emrich Foundation has distributed over $70M of curriculum to over 250,000 children around the world. Below are some of the grantees who helped make that possible.
Curriki was founded by Sun Microsystems in March 2004 as the Global Education & Learning Community (GELC). In 2006, Sun spun GELC off as an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit to focus on building a repository of curricula and to create an online community for this repository. The organization changed its name to Curriki in 2006.
Curriki has over 350,000 educator, parent, and student members, and has garnered over 8.5 million visits from around the world. Curriki has received a number of awards, and has given out a number of awards as well, over the past several years; a partial list can be found at the Curriki website.
The Foundation open sourced much of its curriculum through the Curriki platform and was one of the most widely used resources on the site.
