From February 27 – March 20, 2015 Greenbrier Learning Center (GLC) will compete in the HipGive2Edu Crowdfunding Competition sponsored by Hispanics In Philanthropy. By participating, GLC will be eligible for up to $65,000 in matching funds.
GLC seeks to raise money to support their nationally recognized programming that provides out-of-school services to 80 low income students in 3rd-5th grades across three sites in Arlington, Virginia. During the contest, donors may visit http://greenbrierlearning.org and make a gift to GLC’s campaign. Matching funds will be awarded to the first four organizations to meet their goal, as well as dollar-for-dollar matches for gifts made on February 27 and March 11. GLC hopes to raise more than $10,000 and increase community awareness during this campaign.
Greenbrier Learning Center provides students with daily academic support, placing a strong emphasis on reading. Last year, 92% of GLC students improved their reading instructional levels and nearly two-thirds improving by two or more instructional levels. Additionally, GLC’s Learning ROCKS! program was recognized as “one of the top 50 arts- and humanities-based programs in the country” by the National Arts & Humanities Youth Program Award through the [US] President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities.
