Local corporation supports children in Oakland’s under-resourced neighborhood schools
This past month, The Clorox Company Foundation awarded Children Rising a $10,000 grant to support our proven one-on-one interventional literacy and math tutoring programs. We are so honored and thankful to have once again received this funding. Support from amazing local corporations and foundations enables children and youth in our community to rise above their challenges to reach their God-given potential.
The Clorox Company Foundation, founded in 1980, has a mission to foster healthy and inclusive communities so people can be well and thrive. Since its inception, the foundation has awarded cash grants totaling nearly $130 million to nonprofit organizations, including annual grants to Children Rising since 2006.
Youth Development and Education
Grant consideration prioritizes organizations and programs that “provide differentiated and personalized interventions for young people that address persistent barriers to opportunity and are responsive to unique challenges faced by young people in their local communities. Education grants will focus on decreasing the achievement gaps in literacy and STEM for capable young people who deserve to learn, but who face multiple obstacles.”

Our Succeeding by Reading and Path2Math tutoring programs align well with those youth development and education goals. And our focus on neighborhood schools most impacted by poverty, violence, and educational inequity nurtures children who typically face multiple obstacles to education.
Thank you to The Clorox Company Foundation for your ongoing support of children and youth in the Oakland community. Your support is helping to build bridges to a better future.
YES, I CAN empower a child to build bridges to a better future!
