MindEdge's philanthropy is linked to learning and to the empowerment of learners. Consequently, the company's philanthropic outreach is designed to provide education and training, largely on a pro bono basis, that offers lasting benefits for the disadvantaged in terms of skill and knowledge mastery.
The MindEdge Scholars Program
The MindEdge Scholars Program assists students from disadvantaged backgrounds with earning college credit by offering no-cost online preparation and by subsidizing test fees for the College Board's College-Level Examination Program® (CLEP®).
Selected students are granted access to CLEP® test preparation courses in popular college subjects and, after successfully completing a course, have their $70 test fee subsidized by MindEdge. When they pass the test, they can earn college credit. (Over 2,900 colleges accept CLEP® courses for credit.)
The MindEdge Scholars Program will commence with MindEdge's self-paced American Government CLEP® preparation course and then expand to other CLEP® areas. MindEdge's American Government course reviews the material common to most college introductory American Government courses. It further provides a diagnostic pretest to measure readiness, sequential instruction, interactive lessons and exercises, a full-length practice examination, and an accelerated QuickTrack option for those seeking an abbreviated review. The course also offers expert video commentary, links to historical documents, and innovative graphic (comics) non-fiction presentations of key moments in American history.

The MindEdge Nonprofit Management Initiative
The MindEdge Nonprofit Management Initiative provides nonprofit institutions in disadvantaged communities online training at dramatically reduced rates. Among these online course offerings are MindEdge's seven online Nonprofit Management courses, which review the key issues facing nonprofit leaders and their organizations. Also available is an online simulation, "Leading the Courtney Museum," designed to provide real-world experience with expert coaching.
Learners who complete the program will be exposed to the latest thinking about fundraising, board and volunteer development, budgeting, marketing, and strategic direction for the nonprofit sector.
The program is 100% web-based, allowing even the busiest individuals to gain the training needed to become a more effective, productive, and strategic contributor to their nonprofit organization's goals and objectives. MindEdge's nonprofit courses have been reviewed and pre-approved for Certified Fundraising Executives (CFRE) International continuing education points.
