An act of true kindness and thoughtfulness lead One Vision to partner up with the Greater Clark Education Foundation. This foundation has helped provide $100,000 in grants each year. “That’s money that makes a difference in classrooms, such as helping fund programs like the transformational Ford Next Generation Learning initiative. We also support College and Career Readiness initiatives such as teacher externships, ACT testing for all juniors and workplace skills training for every high school student. Finally, we provide grants that give our educators access to more effective resources for teaching.” Greater Clark Education Foundation

This awesome credit union started their year with dressing down in a way to donate $580 to the Little Hercules Foundation. In January 2013, three moms, two of them had sons who were diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy wanted to help spread word about Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Their initial goal was to help create awareness and offer assistance with families who are in the same situations. There are many ways to help donate to research, participate in events, volunteer and so on.
