Help us Win a $25,000 Grant and Assist Atlanta!
As one of the 200 finalists in the State Farm Neighborhood Assist program, Communities In Schools of Atlanta (CIS of Atlanta) has the incredible opportunity to win a $25,000 grant to fund our dropout prevention program and help underprivileged youth grow into a successful, well-educated future of Atlanta. However, we cannot win without your help. By clicking here and voting for CIS, you are helping our community get the support it needs. CIS of Atlanta’s project is to strengthen Westside Schools, specifically those in the Washington cluster. We will host literacy events in an effort to create a mentor and volunteer program that will impact thousands of children and families. While our organization has made a huge, self-sustaining impact on the city of Atlanta, there are still so many ways we can improve and build our community, which is why we are asking for your help! The voting phase is open from August 16 – 25, and anyone with a valid email address is eligible to vote up to 10 times per day. The top 40 winners that receive the most votes will be announced on September 28. State Farm Neighborhood Assist is a crowd-sourced philanthropic initiative that lets communities determine where grant funding is awarded. The initiative utilizes the State Farm Review Committee to vet submissions for causes and empowers the community to vote for the final 40 grant winners. The program has been inspired by the incredible number of neighborhoods that are coming together to solve a problem or improve their community. Please share this with your colleagues, friends, neighbors, and family!
