Through EdAhead®, school districts around the country have started to benefit from our matching program.
2013 EdAhead Donations
We’re proud to announce EdAhead donations to the local school districts our offices operate within. Donations were directly related to the total amount of money that participating Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp. employees contributed to their EdAhead accounts in 2013.
Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp.’s Malibu office donated $180,000 to the Santa Monica – Malibu Education Foundation (SMMEF), $150,000 as a direct cash donation, and $30,000 to sponsor a summer internship program.
The SMMEF set their own goal, too. They challenged themselves to raise funds equal to the donation, or forfeit it. They succeeded, raising $150,000 from area donors.
Millburn-Short Hills, NJ
Our Millburn-Short Hills office donated $15,000 to the Education Foundation of Millburn-Short Hills.
Our office in Bethlehem, PA, donated $30,000 to the Bethlehem Area School District to help grow its STEM initiative.
A donation of $10,000 to Guilford County Schools was contributed by our Greensboro, NC, office.
Our office in Tucson, AZ, donated $10,000 to the Tucson Unified School District (TUSD). Like the SMMEF, TUSD has challenged itself to fund-raise donations equal to the amount donated.
Education is Everybody’s Business®
“Access to and choice of education can be the start of many successful futures and — just as important — can seed a network effect of success for families, communities and a nation that will relay on future generations’ leadership to make the most of whatever lies ahead,” said Jeff Stibel. “Individuals can’t solve this problem alone. Education is everybody’s business®.”
