Through the excitement and activity around #GivingTuesday, a national day of giving meant to kickstart the generosity of the holiday season and highlight all the good in the world, we thought it most appropriate to announce our ongoing commitment to our longtime nonprofit partner, Teach for America (TFA), and to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education.
