It’s no secret that we have a pretty stellar Rewards program at Mathnasium! As students make progress on their customized math learning plans, they earn Rewards Cards that can be redeemed for items both small and large ranging from snacks, Squishmallows and Legos to Apple AirPods, Nintendo Switch and a TV.
This past November, however, we invited our students to redeem their hard-earned Rewards Cards in a different way. November 1 kicked off our Month of Giving! For every 2 Rewards Cards students donated to their charity of choice, we committed to donating $1 to a local organization doing some pretty incredible work in our community.
We selected three non-profit organizations covering a range of causes important to our students: Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, Toys for Tots Milwaukee and the Wisconsin Humane Society. It was incredible to see our students so eager to give to others in need. They were curious and compassionate as they learned about these important causes.
On Giving Tuesday, November 30, we proudly donated a collective $253 to these organizations on behalf of our students at Mathnasium of Brookfield, Lake Country, Mequon and Wauwatosa! We also decided to make an additional donation to the Waukesha Community Fund via United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County to support the families impacted by the recent parade tragedy.
Special thanks to Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin for this super cool write-up on the charitable efforts of our students!
