EverFi Surpasses 1,000 K-12 and Higher Education Clients

New partners include prominent higher education institutions, global brands, and private foundations

WASHINGTON, Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- EverFi, Inc., the education technology company that teaches, assesses, and certifies students in critical skills, has announced that its client network has grown to more than 1,000 companies, foundations, and higher education institutions.  In just over a year, the company has added nearly 500 new clients to drive education innovation at scale, cumulatively certifying more than 5.5 million students through its online learning platforms.  

A number of America's leading CEOs and venture capital firms have invested in this mission including Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, Twitter founder Evan Williams, Rethink Education, New Enterprise Associates, Inc. (NEA), and Tomorrow Ventures (the investment arm of Google Chairman Eric Schmidt).

EverFi is working with some of the world's largest brands and organizations to bring its innovative learning platforms to K-12 schools at no cost.  These include BBVA Compass, Burger King, Capital One, Comcast, Genworth Financial, the John Calipari Family Foundation, JPMorgan Chase, Neustar and PepsiCo.

New partner relationships include the Rauner Family Foundation, founded by Chicago businessman Bruce Rauner, has also partnered with EverFi to sponsor the EverFi™ - Financial Literacy program in high schools across Illinois, with JPMorgan Chase sponsoring the program in Chicago.

"The lack of critical financial skills is leaving today's students unprepared to thrive in today's economic environment," said Bruce Rauner.  "While we need to continue to invest in positive change in our state education system, public-private partnerships like this are a critical way to move education forward without costing taxpayers or school districts a single dollar."

Among EverFi's newest clients in the higher education arena are the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Florida State University and Marshall University.  Each of these clients is implementing AlcoholEdu® for College, a 2.5-hour, web-based alcohol abuse prevention course that is used by more than 500 colleges and universities and by 33 percent of all incoming students to four-year colleges and universities in the United States each year.

"We're trying to create a massive new infrastructure in the education space that networks together America's most powerful companies, foundations, universities and public school systems for the purpose of educational innovation," said Tom Davidson, EverFi chief executive officer. "Surpassing 1,000 paying clients and certifying 5.5 million students in critical skills gives us unprecedented size, but there's still a long way to go."

EverFi's network now extends to more than 5,000 high schools, colleges and universities, including 69 of the 100 top school districts in the United States, such as Chicago, Miami, Las Vegas, Houston and Los Angeles.
