Our mission is to provide extraordinary educational experiences that inspire and motivate learners of all ages. CustomED is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that designs and implements extraordinary programs and experiences to solve challenges in education, training and outreach efforts for a variety of organizations.


We are a strategic, collaborative partner in your efforts to connect with learners of all ages. Whether it is a social impact effort that your company feels passionate about, an instructional workshop that your organization needs to get off the ground, or you just want to make positive change but aren’t sure where to start, we can help. We strategize, organize, meticulously plan, and take your idea and make it a reality.

CustomED was formed in 2011 to serve the growing needs of nonprofits, government agencies, businesses, and outreach programs. By developing extraordinary and one-of-a-kind educational experiences which build upon the missions of our partners, CustomED has grown to become a powerful voice in the field of experiential education and social impact.


Our founder and CEO Rusty McCarty brought his experience as COO and Creative Director of one of the world's largest creativity programs to shape a new nonprofit model that would help create custom programs and experiences for companies at every scale: from local businesses to global corporations. Over the last ten years, CustomED has partnered with dozens of organizations to engage over one million learners. And between our dedicated staff, rich partnerships, and the opportunity to work with you and your team: the best is yet to come.
