Davidson Institute for Talent Development

Formed in 1999, the Davidson Institute is a 501(c)3 private operating foundation funded by the Davidsons and headquartered in Reno, Nev.  Prior to starting the Davidson Institute, the Davidsons founded Davidson & Associates Inc., a successful educational software company best known for the Math Blaster™ and Reading Blaster™ series.  They sold Davidson & Associates in 1997 and decided to launch a significant philanthropic effort to continue their commitment to make a positive difference in education and to help all children be successful learners.
