I'm honored to have joined forces with Coinbase to facilitate this donation. I've been continually impressed by their dedication to advancing technical education for girls and women.”

SEATTLE, WA, UNITED STATES, May 15, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Retired Seattle Storm star Sue Bird teamed up with Coinbase to donate $25,000 to Techbridge Girls, a nonprofit devoted to challenging gender, racial, and class bias in STEM fields and culture.

Techbridge Girls helps combat bias by developing gender responsive and culturally relevant STEM curricula that helps girls see their unique STEM lineage, community, interests and path to success. Coinbase, the Seattle Storm, and Sue Bird all share a mutual commitment to this mission.

According to the National Science Board in 2024, “the United States is facing an accelerating science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) talent crisis” and that “for decades, our country has underperformed relative to many peer nations in preK-12 education.”

The $25,000 donation will help Techbridge Girls grow and scale two programs: Track 1: Professional Development and Track 2: Facilitator Certification. Techbridge Girls’ direct work with educators means that STEM can reach more young students.

This isn’t the first time Coinbase has collaborated with Sue Bird on education. They previously collaborated on an educational content series that focused on crypto fundamentals and the benefits of the crypto economy.

Gary Sun, VP of Marketing at Coinbase, says, “This season marks Coinbase’s third year as a sponsor of WNBA and Seattle Storm. We are proud to support women’s excellence in sports, and this donation takes this commitment one step further to support young girls in STEM. As a technology company, we recognize the importance of technical education, and we are proud to support Techbridge Girls.”

Sue Bird says “I'm honored to have joined forces with Coinbase to facilitate this donation. Over our two-year partnership, I've been continually impressed by their dedication to advancing technical education for girls and women.”

Casi Herrera, Director of Partnerships and Strategic Growth at Techbridge Girls says, “We are grateful to Sue Bird and Coinbase for this donation. According to the National Science Board, we are not producing enough STEM workers to meet the workforce needs of the 21st century. This donation will play a small role in helping us shift this trend.”
