BEAM's programs are provided at no cost to students and families. We rely on the support of the following foundations, companies, and individuals to continue achieving our mission of creating a realistic pathway for underserved students. 

Core Supporter

Funding support for Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics was provided by the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation. The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation is dedicated to advancing the education of exceptionally promising students who have financial need. It offers the largest scholarships in the U.S., comprehensive counseling and other support services to students from 7th grade to graduate school, and has awarded $147 million in scholarships to nearly 2,000 students and over $88 million in grants. 

Major Supporter

This project was supported by Science Sandbox, a Simons Foundation initiative dedicated to engaging everyone with the process of science. The mission of Science Sandbox is to unlock scientific thinking by engaging people with the process of science and to support and help build programs that reinforce a powerful notion: You don’t have to be a scientist to think like a scientist.
