Heart Math Tutoring’s Funding Initiative Grows Program to Include 12 CMS School Partners

August 25, 2016

Heart Math Tutoring has completed its Spring Funding Initiative and raised $630K, which will enable Heart to grow from eight to 12 school sites during the 2016/17 school year.

Funds raised were from grants, corporation donations and from community support. Individual donors contributed $220K. Several local and state-wide foundations have made commitments to Heart at the “School Sponsorship” level ($25K – $50K): Sisters of Mercy of North Carolina Foundation, Social Venture Partners, The Charlotte Mecklenburg Community Foundation at Foundation For The Carolinas, the Belk Foundation, Wells Fargo, Google Fiber, and North Carolina GlaxoSmithKline Foundation.

In addition, The Leon Levine Foundation (“TLLF”) has committed to contributing up to $50,000 in the form of a $1 for $1 match for new, increased, and lapsed donations or corporate pledges. Heart must secure support by November 30, 2016 to qualify for the TLLF match.

“We greatly appreciate the generosity of our community partners and the financial support that will enable us to bring the program to six hundred students this coming school year,” said Emily Elliott, executive director of Heart Math Tutoring. “Funds raised will ensure all students build the strong foundation in math and enthusiasm for academics needed for long-term success.”
