About Us

The Scratch Foundation is a new non-profit whose mission is to provide creative learning tools to all children, with a specific focus on the Scratch programming environment and online community ( With Scratch, young people create their own interactive stories, games, and animations—and share their creations with one another in an online community. Through advocacy work, project funding, and partnerships, we create opportunities for the world's youth to imagine, create, and learn through coding.

The Foundation was founded by Mitchel Resnick, Professor of Learning Research at the MIT Media Lab, and David Siegel, Co-Founder and Co-Chairman of the investment management firm Two Sigma.
