New Partner Alert: Equitable Foundation!
November 1, 2021
We are excited to announce one of Heart Math Tutoring’s newest funding partners, Equitable Foundation! Equitable Foundation has made a significant pledge of $75,000 over the next three years to ensure elementary students develop a strong foundation in math and enthusiasm for academics through Heart Math Tutoring!
This grant will sponsor a school site in 2022/23 and 2023/24, where 50 students will receive 1:1 tutoring twice per week from October – May. Funding provides tutoring materials for students, family engagement, and a dedicated Program Coordinator – a HMT staff member who manages tutor and school logistics while providing real-time support during tutoring sessions.
Equitable is already on the ground helping students catch up in 2021/22: ten Equitable employees are volunteering their time as tutors! Thank you! Each week, they encourage students during 30-minute or one-hour sessions, playing math games at each student’s level using Heart’s curriculum.
Jarian Kerekes, Head of Social Impact and Equitable Foundation, is a first-time tutor. Jarian shared, “We are thrilled to support Heart Math Tutoring to further amplify the impact they are having on students in our region. The one-on-one tutoring combined with proven instruction make the program a favorite of our employees and we’re excited to grow our partnership.”
