We rely on charitable contributions to fully fund our cost-free program, including holistic supports for students: laptops, therapy, financial assistance, childcare subsidies, coaching and career services, and more. Make a gift to Ada before year-end to support economic justice!
As we change the face of tech, we change who holds wealth and power in our society. When Ada graduates enter the tech sector, they typically triple their income compared to what they were making before Ada.

Help transform the lives of Adies by making a donation before year-end!
We’re Out of Office this week. See you in the new year!
Happy Holidays from Ada! Enjoy this time with your loved ones. ✨
Economic justice is breaking down the specific barriers to entry in the tech sector for low-income women and gender-expansive folks, especially Black and brown people.

Make a gift to Ada this holiday season to advance economic justice!
To truly deliver economic justice, we can’t simply provide coding education. Many people in communities we serve don’t have access to coding education because of barriers like financial need, childcare responsibilities, technology needs, and lack of mental health supports.

When we shift wealth into the hands of women and gender-expansive folks, it’s not only their personal quality of life that improves – they reinvest in their families and communities. This is true economic justice.

Help Ada break down barriers in tech. Donate now!
