We are excited to announce several new grant awards that will help Heart serve additional students in the 2016/17 school year! Through a $25,000 sponsorship from Google Fiber, Heart will be expanding to Merry Oaks International Academy! Wells Fargo will sponsor Heart’s school site at Billingsville Leadership Academy for the third consecutive year with a grant of $30,000.

“Heart provides an invaluable service for our students through its curriculum and dedicated tutors who are also personal cheerleaders to our students,” says Michelle G. Johnson, principal at Billingsville.

Sisters of Mercy of North Carolina Foundation also made a School Sponsorship-level grant of $40,000 this spring. Grants of $10,000 were also made by Bank of America Foundation, Duke Energy Foundation, and First Presbyterian Church. Adds Elliott, “With a waiting list of sixteen schools, these grants are so important for Heart to meet the need in CMS. We are excited to keep growing the program’s impact and appreciate the fantastic support we have received from the community.”

The organization’s goal – through its Spring Funding Initiative – is to raise $750,000 by June 30, 2016 to expand its service and support 750 students and 860 volunteer tutors across 15 schools in 2016/17. To date, $505,000 has been raised from grants, corporation donations, and community support.
