Musk Foundation donates $5 million to Khan Academy

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has donated $5 million to the Khan Academy through his charitable organization, the Musk Foundation.

The donation was announced on Twitter by Khan Academy founder Salman Khan. In a video Khan thanked the CEO for his generous donation which will help “to ensure that humanity has access to a free, world-class education.”

Created as an American non-profit educational organization in 2008 by Sal Khan, the Khan Academy creates online tools that help educate students. The organization produces lessons in the form of short videos, and includes supplementary practice exercises and materials for educators.

Elon Musk has a long history with the Khan Academy. In 2013 he visited the Khan Academy office in Mountain View, California for a lengthy discussion with Khan. The nearly 50-minute interview kicks off with Musk describing how a $3 part essentially stopped the Model S production line in the early days of Tesla.
