About


WHY DO WE HOPE YOU'LL HELP US?


We’re the TED-Ed team -- a scrappy group of fifteen educators and artists who need your help to spread knowledge and opportunities to everyone, everywhere, for free. Why? Because smart, empowered people make the world a better, happier and safer place.

TED-Ed is a nonprofit. Your donations through Patreon are tax-deductible.

WHAT DO WE DO?


1. OUR VIDEOS EDUCATE PEOPLE 
We turn teachers’ best lessons into high-quality animated videos and share them online, for free. The videos are currently being viewed by over 2 million learners per day. With your support, we'll be able to make more videos and invest more in the quality of each video we produce.

2. OUR PROGRAMS EMPOWER PEOPLE
We’ve developed two dynamic programs -- TED-Ed Student Talks and the TED-Ed Innovative Educators -- that help students and educators master the art of public speaking. These free, empowering programs have already supercharged participants' voices in over 120 countries. With your support, we believe we could celebrate and elevate the ideas of an entire generation of teachers and students.

3. OUR PLATFORM CONNECTS PEOPLE
Our free online platform, which has won 13 Webby Awards, helps millions of people around the world connect with big ideas, and connect with each other. With your support, we’d be able to facilitate more amazing cultural exchanges like these:



So, what do you say? Will you pledge a small monthly donation to help us achieve our goals? Every little bit helps, and your kindness will be rewarded with some pretty awesome perks!

Thanks,
The TED-Ed Team
