Continued Support from Two Funders in Fiscal Year 2018

Summit Education Initiative (SEI) appreciates the support we receive from local businesses and organizations in Summit County. We thank Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority (AMHA) and Martha Holden Jennings Foundation for their most recent financial contributions to SEI:

Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority (AMHA)

Thanks to AMHA’s casual Fridays, SEI recently earned extra funding. AMHA staff designated the proceeds employees raised each time they chose to wear jeans on Fridays throughout the month of June 2017 to SEI. Employees who participated donated a few dollars each time they decided to wear jeans on casual Fridays.Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority Logo

SEI supports AMHA’s Early Childhood Initiative (ECI). Through ECI programs, AMHA provides high-quality early care and education to the 3,000 children under age 5 living in AMHA housing. The programs maximize scare resources to work directly with children and their caregivers and also link families to community resources.

AMHA’s donation will support SEI’s Cradle to Career Continuum by helping us provide resources to families to better prepare their children for kindergarten.

Within the current fiscal year, recent funding from Martha Holden Jennings Foundation will continue supporting the Rubber City Math Teachers’ Circle, as well as the development of the Middle School Network. This new network of math teachers and middle school administrators from Summit County will launch in fall 2017.
