Help Facing History Reach More Students

With the shift to virtual classes, a contentious election, and a national reckoning of racial inequities over the past year, more teachers than ever are turning to Facing History for support. Our network now includes more than 350,000 educators around the globe, including nearly 20,000 educators across Southern California.

To help Facing History meet the increased demand for our programs in Los Angeles, an anonymous supporter has offered to match all donations raised through this edition of The Giving List, up to $100,000. 

Facing History believes young people can become critical thinkers, stand up to bigotry and hate, engage in their communities and strengthen democracy. Your investment will train up to 1,000 new teachers to empower their students to challenge the legacies of injustice and create a more just and equitable world. Visit
