In 2012, TABS began partnering with a charitable organization on an annual basis to help deserving education-related non-profits gain some exposure from the boarding school network. Here's a look at our Charitable Partners so far:
DonorsChoose.org makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need, moving the us closer to a nation where students in every community have the tools and experiences they need for a great education.
DonorsChoose.org was started by a history teacher. In 2000, Charles Best, a teacher at a Bronx public high school, wanted his students to read Little House on the Prairie. As he was making photocopies of the one book he could procure, Charles thought about all the money he and his colleagues were spending on books, art supplies, and other materials. And he figured there were people out there who'd want to help — if they could see where their money was going. Charles sketched out a website where teachers could post classroom project requests, and donors could choose the ones they wanted to support. His colleagues posted the first 11 requests. Then it spread. Today, DonorsChoose.org is available to every public school in America.

Nurturing Minds provides financial and technical support to programs improving access to quality education for girls in Tanzania, with a particular emphasis on girls who are poor, marginalized, and at risk of becoming involved in exploitative forms of child labor. Currently, Nurturing Minds is supporting Secondary Education for Girls’ Advancement (SEGA) and its development of a girls’ secondary boarding school in Morogoro, Tanzania.
The SEGA Girls School provides quality education to over 200 vulnerable girls, many of whom are orphans and who would otherwise not get the chance to attend school. The school aims to foster the development of strong values, healthy self-esteem, environmental stewardship and independent thinking skills among its students. Nurturing Minds has a long-term vision to become financially self-sufficient through the development of school-run businesses, a second stream of paying students, an on-going student sponsorship program and an endowment.
To learn how your school can get involved, visit Nurturing Minds, and be sure to stop by the Nurturing Minds display table outside of the Exhibit Hall.
CHANGING LIVES THROUGH EDUCATION Founded in 1992, New Jersey SEEDS is a privately funded, statewide, nonprofit organization. NJ SEEDS changes the lives of motivated, high-achieving students from low-income families by transforming their educational opportunities. They ensure that students have the knowledge, skills, access and support to thrive at the nation’s finest schools and colleges.
Wishbone is a non-profit organization helping low-income students attend high-quality out-of-school programs. We believe that closing the opportunity gap is essential in the fight against the education crisis facing America.
Founded in 2008, SOLA is a small non-profit organization dedicated to furthering educational and leadership opportunities for the new generation of Afghanis, especially women. SOLA operates a boarding school, helps students find scholarships abroad, and even helps college graduates secure employment opportunities.Managing Director and Acting School Head, Shabana Basij-Rasikh, was born and educated in Kabul before heading to the U.S as an exchange student for grades 10 – 12. From there, she attended and graduated magna cum laude from Middlebury College.In an interview with CNN, Basij-Rasikh noted, “Many of the girls in our boarding school are the first in their families to receive an education. Had they stayed in their provinces, they probably wouldn’t have been able to continue with their education.” She hopes that girls like the ones at her school will continue to fight for their right to be educated.Basij-Rasikh attended TABS 2012 Annual Conference and was featured as a special guest prior to the keynote Erik Wahl. Contributions were collected at the TABS registration desk and 100% of the proceeds from the post-conference sale of Erik Wahl’s keynote paintings were donated to SOLA.
