Brighthouse Financial Surprises Heart Math Tutoring With a $50,000 Grant!

August 17, 2018

Earlier this week, Brighthouse Financial surprised Heart Math Tutoring with a $50,000 grant! The grant will provide the philanthropy needed for one school site, bringing 50+ students critical skills and confidence through a year of weekly one-on-one tutoring.

In 2017/18, four Brighthouse Financial employees tutored weekly with Heart, providing seven students with a mentor and giving CMS ~70 volunteer hours! Heart tutors Jane LaVenture and Courtney Knowling were present at the check presentation.

Brighthouse Financial Foundation President Theresa Foust says, “The foundation board of directors is excited for the foundation to fund the tutoring program for an entire school for the 2019/20 school year. Thank you for all you do for the children in Charlotte!”

Brighthouse Financial’s contribution will fund the costs of a school site which include an on-site Heart Program Coordinator and tutoring materials and supplies that make tutoring effective. To date, 98% of students have met program growth goals on pre- and post-assessments. You can join Brighthouse Financial in their commitment to Charlotte students by donating to Heart or signing up to be a volunteer!
