Our donors are ensuring that students across the country have access to the rigorous education and qualified teachers they need to succeed. Their generous support makes it possible for our proven programs to reach an ever-growing number of students, teachers and communities.

Supporting Equitable Education

The impact of our work – changing school cultures and increasing life-long opportunities for all students – wouldn’t be possible without support from our earliest funders, such as ExxonMobil and Texas Instruments, and wouldn’t continue without contributions from those and other corporate, philanthropic and individual donors.

We’re humbled by the trust of our donors and we’re proud to celebrate the achievements attained by their support.

Support Our Work

Today's students have big dreams. They’re on a quest to make a difference. When you give to NMSI, you’re building foundations for better outcomes and stronger communities.


We put 86% of all revenue into programs that directly benefit students, teachers, schools and their communities. We're also judicious about every dollar we spend, making NMSI impactful and financially stable.


NMSI's corporate, philanthropic and government fundraisers have decades of experience collaborating with entities from across diverse disciplines. They're dedicated to building relationships that deliver local, regional and nationwide impact.
