About Common Cents
At Common Cents, we are on a mission to create innovative solutions and programs that foster children to learn to love themselves, love others and love learning.
We envision making school during a child’s compulsory first decade so compelling, indispensible and enjoyable an experience that all our children would willingly sign up for another ten years.
Since the inception of this flagship program in 1991, participating students have collected $7.7 million in pennies, awarded 16,114 grants and volunteered 33 million service hours to support causes for children, the environment, healthcare, human rights, the elderly and disaster relief.
Today, nearly 900 schools in broadly reaching areas such as New York, Florida, Ohio, Colorado and Washington participate in the program.
