HELP US TO HELP OTHERS
SPREAD AWARENESS AND DONATE
We want to help students all across the globe. Please help us spread the word. We are confident that the participants will have fun solving some of the coolest math problems with our unique approach, allowing them to try each problem more than once.
We also need funds to run this program, especially for licensing costs involving specific tools. The anticipated cost to facilitate this is over $15,000. We are relying on the generosity of our donors to help meet this cost, as we will not be charging the students any contest fees. Therefore, we will greatly appreciate your support and donation.
