Fuel Dreams at Clara Brown Entrepreneurial Academy

Donate Now: Bridge the Gap for Clara Brown's Aspiring Entrepreneurs:
Many students at Clara Brown Entrepreneurial Academy, a public, magnet school face a variety of challenges that limit their potential. Despite these hurdles, we're dedicated to transforming K-4 students into budding entrepreneurs, with aspirations to grow to K-8. Our vision is vast, but resources are often stretched thin. By donating, you provide not just books or tools but hope and a chance. Your contribution supports student startups, empowers educators, and solidifies partnerships, like our collaboration with Gary Vaynerchuk. Give a child the opportunity they deserve; make your impactful donation today.

As we grow, our vision is to serve students up to grade 8, imparting them with the spirit of invention and the zest for entrepreneurship, through our monthly entrepreneur pop-up shops, our venture lab curriculum, our personalized LearningFREQUENCY engagement profiles and research, our partnership with 7 Mindsets and our unique approach to developing our 7 entrepreneurial skillsets.

Why Your Support is Crucial:

In a rapidly evolving world, cultivating the minds of young innovators has never been more critical. We want our students to be at the forefront, equipped with the knowledge and skills that the future demands. To accomplish this vision, we need your assistance. Here's how your generous donation will make a difference:

  • Expanding Our Library: Let's foster a love for reading by adding diverse books to our shelves. Titles on invention and entrepreneurship will be prioritized to stoke the flames of curiosity and ambition.
  • Creating Transformative Experiences: With your help, we can conduct immersive field trips, connecting classroom theories to real-world applications. And, for students on free/reduced lunch, scholarships will ensure they're not left behind.
  • Nurturing Student Start-ups: Imagine a student crafting school-themed merchandise. Your support will procure tools like t-shirt presses, enabling these young entrepreneurs to turn ideas into businesses, all while at school.
  • Empowering Our Educators: The right training for our educators means a brighter future for our students. Donations will help us send our staff to high-quality training programs aligned with our ethos.
  • Building Our Identity: We want the world to recognize our distinctive educational approach. Your contributions will help us craft banners, flags, and other branding items, proudly announcing our presence.
  • Fostering Industry Collaborations: We are thrilled to announce our partnership with renowned entrepreneur, Gary Vaynerchuk in our inaugural year. His wisdom is invaluable. As we progress, your support will enable collaborations with other industry leaders, enhancing our curriculum and student exposure. Here is the podcast episode he shared with million of his followers of the interview with our CBEA students.
