Heart Math Tutoring Kicks Off Spring Funding Initiative
March 22, 2017
Heart Math Tutoring kicks off its spring funding initiative today with a boost from The Leon Levine Foundation, who has awarded Heart a $350,000 capacity-building grant! The grant is payable over three years as Heart offers one-on-one tutoring to more students, scales its work, and becomes more sustainable. $130,000 of the grant goes towards Heart’s current funding initiative, which seeks $880K to partner with 18 schools in the 2017/18 school year. This funding would mean that over 900 students will be matched with one-on-one tutors and will build needed skills and confidence.
“We are proud of what our volunteers and donors are accomplishing for Charlotte students, particularly in growing Heart’s reach while student outcomes are also increasing,” says executive director Emily Elliott. “We invite the community to join our fundraising effort to ensure all students build the strong foundation in math and enthusiasm for academics needed for long-term success.”
To become a weekly volunteer tutor with Heart, read FAQs and sign up! Heart provides a structured curriculum and a coordinator on-site to make the experience positive and successful. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss further.
