From question writers and coordinators, to volunteers and donors, we're fortunate to have a large and wonderful community!


More than 600 chapter and state coordinators, many of whom are engineers affiliated with the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE), go beyond typical volunteering. In-person, social math gatherings make MATHCOUNTS special, and these volunteers plan and run 500 chapter competitions and 56 state competitions every year for our Mathletes.

"Thank you coordinators for making this experience possible. We would never be here without you."

"[MATHCOUNTS competitions] were unlike any math exam I had taken before...this made math seem almost like a puzzle or a system of challenges that had to be solved...This style of exam took away all boredom by applying math, as it should be, to real life!"
-Adam, competition alumnus


Our coaches, club leaders and video team advisors inspire and prepare the next generation of problem solvers. Thousands of teachers, engineers, alumni and extracurricular group leaders dedicate their time to lead MATHCOUNTS programs in their schools, math circles and youth organizations, providing support and mentorship to our Mathletes.

"My MATHCOUNTS journey would not have been so impactful and memorable had my middle school coaches not been there to serve as powerful examples and inspiration."

-Alex, competition alumnus

More than a middle school program

"While yes—I am eternally grateful for the mathematical skills I've gained from MATHCOUNTS—I have to appreciate the little things, the interactions and experiences I've gained from MATHCOUNTS and its community."

-Andrew, competition alumnus

Donors & Sponsor Advocates

Donors and sponsor advocates make the work we do possible. Many are also volunteers, alumni and parents of alumni, and we are so grateful for their generosity.

Donors help us provide free or subsidized materials and programs, plus support extra resources for low-income schools and outreach to students underrepresented in STEM. Click here to donate.


We have an alumni network of more than 6 million people who have become educators, engineers, volunteers and STEM advocates.

Alumni support our programs in so many ways, and many have gone on to make a difference in their communities and the world. Each year, hundreds of alumni serve as coaches, club leaders and video team advisors. Click here to learn about alumni opportunities.
