The Top 4 Reasons to Give to MATHCOUNTS

A donation to the MATHCOUNTS Foundation can do so much! With your help, we can help all students—whether they love math or fear it—reach their full potential. Your support matters for so many reasons; here's our top four!

1. Because MATHCOUNTS helps kids who love math AND kids who fear math.

While working together in a supportive environment, students with varying interest and ability levels in math participate in positive math experiences—like creating a video based on a MATHCOUNTS problem through the Math Video Challenge, competing on a team of four against a rival school through the MATHCOUNTS Competition Series or working together on fun, collaborative activities in The National Math Club. These are experiences that cannot be replicated in the classroom—experiences that make students better problem solvers.


2. Because MATHCOUNTS makes an impact at the national level AND at the local level.

We have programs in over 7,000 schools and conduct interschool competitions in every U.S. state and territory. As a result, MATHCOUNTS is making a difference not only on a national level, but also in your community. When you support MATHCOUNTS, you’re supporting your friends and neighbors, as well as preparing the next generation of problem solvers—the doctors, engineers, teachers and creative thinkers—who will one day lead our country.


3. Because MATHCOUNTS works.

MATHCOUNTS builds the critical thinking and problem-solving skills necessary for success: 95% of teachers believe that MATHCOUNTS problems are effective at improving their students’ problem-solving and critical thinking skills. MATHCOUNTS alumni are also more likely to continue with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), with 3 out of every 4 alumni studying a STEM field in college—nearly three times the national average.


4. Because a student's experience in MATHCOUNTS can be transformative.

We measure our success not just by our numbers, but also on the personal impact we have on each and every participant.
