The fundraising program is set to raise $250,000 before year’s end to help construct two STEM classrooms at the Mariano Rivera Learning Center in New Rochelle, New York.
The STEM classrooms will create an environment that expands students’ knowledge in technology, engineering, mathematics, coding and product developments. All Learning Center students will have the opportunity to participate in activities related to coding, UX/UI design, engineering and robotics on site or virtually.
“Together, as we launch the MVP Program, we will raise much needed funds to help build our Learning Center in New York to support and stabilize the future of our students living in low income communities,” explains Mariano Rivera. “We are grateful for organizations like Keller Williams and PinkTie and appreciate all of the MVP of the Year fundraisers and teams who have committed their time and energy to this program for the sake of the underserved minority youth. The MVP of the Year program will help Learning Center students receive access to two STEM learning initiatives which will prepare them for a successful and advantageous future,” says Rivera.
“The “MVP of the Year” fundraising competition works thusly: The program consists of 10 teams all competing to see who raises the most money to help construct the two STEM Learning classrooms.
Each team runs their own fundraising events, virtual give aways and auctions to raise a guaranteed minimum of $25,000. The winning team will be announced and awarded the title of “MVP of the Year.” All proceeds raised from the MVP of the Year fundraising program will benefit and help construct two STEM classrooms at the Mariano Rivera Learning Center by 2022.
“Throughout the duration of this program, we can connect with one another again (from a distance) and continue to cultivate a company culture that focuses on giving back. Now more than ever, corporations and philanthropies need to engage and uplift one another to support communities in need,” says Mike Cave, CEO of 1st Equity Title Insurance and Co-Founder of PinkTie Charities.
“The digital divide has left behind thousands of young
students who do not have access to the internet or a computer at home,” explains
Daniella Decker, executive director, PinkTie. “Together, we can quickly
re-envision education and improve digital literacy capabilities in New Rochelle and the
greater New York community.”
