Khan Academy is a nonprofit organization, founded in 2007, with the mission to provide a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere. The full suite of Khan Academy education resources covers numerous subjects, spanning preschool through early college, with select subjects available in 50+ languages.
Since 2015, the Amgen Foundation has been the exclusive sponsor of Khan Academy’s online biology resources, which include high school and college-level biology content. This collaboration is made possible through a seven-year over $9 million commitment and brings free, high-quality biology education to millions of learners around the world.
The Amgen Foundation and Khan Academy are accelerating measurable science education outcomes both inside and outside the classroom. With our partnership focused on advancing equity in science education, we support students of color as well as those from low-income communities.
In addition to our Biology sponsorship, the Amgen Foundation also supports Khan Academy’s content collaboration with LabXchange and Khan Academy’s district partnership programming with United States school districts facing budget shortfalls.

A snapshot of Khan Academy’s progress with Amgen Foundation support
Khan Academy is leveraging the power of technology to help students around the world.
"Khan Academy allowed me to reach my students at their own individual levels. I now feel like I am more of a coach and facilitator in a collaborative class culture instead of the 'sole purveyor of knowledge'. I feel like I am more in touch with how my students are doing and more able to assess their abilities"
