Our first grant! Thanks to the United Way

"Dear Elad,
I would like to congratulate you and your team on receiving a one-time $1,000 grant through Student United Way."

Today, we received our first grant! We will be using the money to run a summer academy for children at Clay Elementary. We are proud to have the United Way's support as we work to give all kids a chance to get a good education.

As we take time today to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., his efforts to make America a fairer place, and how far we have come in pursuit of that dream, we shouldn't forget that we still have a ways to go.

There's no question that we can do more to give all children in this country a fair chance. Every dollar, every commitment of time, every piece of advice and support that we get goes to doing just that.

We appreciate the support you have given us, and we will continue to work hard to keep your trust.
