AP Access Fund | To Donate
On Wednesday, February 15, Lt. Governor Cyrus Habib announced the launch of the AP Access Fund Initiative—a joint effort with bipartisan support, spearheaded by the Lt. Governor’s office to raise $800,000 to help the state cover the cost of Advanced Placement (AP), Cambridge International (CI), and International Baccalaureate (IB) exam fees for low-income students in Washington state.
As covered in the Seattle Times and Education Week, Microsoft, the Schultz Family Foundation, the Boeing Company, Alaska Airlines, JPMorgan Chase and Nordstrom have joined the initiative, pledging a combined $375,000 to kick start the effort.
