Google is giving $5 million to Bay Area nonprofits. You get to decide where the funding goes. Vote now for The Big Lift!
The Big Lift is one of 10 finalists (out of 800 applicants) for a Google Impact Challenge grant to improve reading proficiency and early learning in OUR district.
Did you know that 55% of CUSD students are not reading proficiently by 3rd grade? The Big Lift’s bold goal is to transform early learning so ALL kids can read and succeed in school and beyond.
CEF, a partner with The Big Lift, provides funding to continue K-3 reading proficiency gains in our local public schools.
Our collective Big Lift effort has already received $250,000 from the Google Impact Challenge. Presently we are ranked #7 in the Google Impact Challenge but if enough people vote and we can move up into the top four, the Big Lift will receive ANOTHER $250K for a total of $500K. Please VOTE for The Big Lift by October 20 using this link -- tell your friends!
