CA Technologies Continues Support of DonorsChooseorg STEM Initiatives


Campaign Brings More Than 350 School Projects to Life

NEW YORK, N.Y., February 11, 2014 – CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that the company, in partnership with DonorsChoose.org, has helped bring more than 350 science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) projects to life and helped 26,855 high need students receive learning materials through CA Technologies Double Your Impact STEM Campaign.

DonorsChoose.org, also a CA Technologies customer, is an online charity that makes it easy for public school teachers to submit funding requests for classroom projects and materials. Once requests are submitted, individuals and organizations can easily browse requests and donate to the project that inspires them most.

Through the campaign, CA Technologies has contributed over $100,000 to STEM projects over the past two years around the country in locations including Arizona, California, Georgia, Massachusetts, New York, Texas, Virginia and Washington.

“We are thrilled that the contributions made through our program have reached so many students, teachers and schools,” said Erica Christensen, vice president, Corporate Social Responsibility, CA Technologies. “Supporting STEM learning is a top priority for CA, and through initiatives like this, we hope to help provide young people with the tools they need to succeed and encourage the next generation of technology leaders.”

Projects funded through CA Technologies Double Your Impact STEM campaign include:

• An iPad Mini donated to an undeserved school in Massachusetts to help a middle school teacher inspire her students through new technology
• A new computer for a class of special needs students to help them improve their tech skills in Chicago, IL
• Resources to create a science library including books, hands-on learning labs and science software for an elementary class in San Francisco, CA
• Google Chromebooks for a class of 5th graders to be used for science and math research projects in Charlottesville, VA

“We are deeply grateful for the support of CA Technologies, both as a funder and a technology partner,” said Charles Best, Founder of DonorsChoose.org.  “Thanks to their support, thousands of students now have access to critical STEM learning materials.”
