We are honored that the First Niagara Financial Group and the First Niagara Foundation have awarded the CfAL organization with a $2,500 grant. This news is very pleasing. But, just as important is their confidence in our capability to help improve the math literacy of underperforming 3rd through 5th grade public school children. These students live in the most impoverished neighborhoods of New Haven, Connecticut.
Their grant will be used to support CfAL’s Learning Math After School Can Be Fun program. With this grant, and financial support from other funders, in July 2014, we will intervene and help improve the math literacy of underperforming 4th and 5th grade students attending elementary schools in New Haven. CfAL will give engaging math instruction to as many as 28 students attending these schools.
We are thankful to the First Niagara Financial Group and the First Niagara Foundation for their financial support and for being our community partner. Mutually, we strive to strengthen the New Haven community, by helping to improve public school children’s education and their quality of life.
