About the Community
Khan Academy is a not-for-profit educational organization started by Salman Khan. In August 2004, Sal Khan began remotely tutoring his cousin, Nadia. As she improved in math class, word got around and soon he was tutoring a handful of his cousins and family members. Scheduling became a real issue and Sal started recording videos and posting them on YouTube in 2006 so everyone could watch on their own. More and more people kept watching, and Sal has continued to make content ever since. Now we have a small team working hard to build out a free world class education at Khan Academy.
Why We're Fundraising
A free world-class education for anyone anywhere.
Khan Academy is an organization on a mission. We're a not-for-profit with the goal of changing education for the better by providing a free world-class education for anyone anywhere.
All of the site's resources are available to anyone. It doesn't matter if you are a student, teacher, home-schooler, principal, adult returning to the classroom after 20 years, or a friendly alien just trying to get a leg up in earthly biology. The Khan Academy's materials and resources are available to you completely free of charge.
Our online materials cover subjects ranging from math and finance to history and art. With thousands of bite-sized videos, step-by-step problems and instant data, Khan Academy provides a rich and engaging learning experience. You can earn points and badges along the way, and coach others as well.
In addition to our online materials, we are also translating our materials into the world's most spoken languages, working with schools on innovating how learning is done in the classroom, and running a summer camp to explore project based learning.
