Parson Fundraising, 2016

Cumming, GA.  August 20, 2017.  Next Generation Focus (NGF) has raised $1019.60 in the annual Back to School Fundraising sponsored by Parsons Gifts.  These funds will be used to sponsor students who qualify for the SmarterMe Programs at NGF. 

SmarterMe® Academy and Summer Program aim to help K-8 students from low-income families who are significantly behind in reading and math in their respective classes.  SmarterMe® Programs provide students with subsidized tutoring on reading, math and other grade-appropriate subjects, as well as STEM enrichment activities.  During the SmarterMe® Academy Program students attend sessions three times a week, on weekday afternoons and Saturday mornings during the school year.  During SmarterMe® Summer Program students attend sessions during the summer months to retain what they have learned during the school year.


"Parsons Gifts has been sponsoring fundraising events for Next Generation Focus for years and we are always grateful for its support for our mission." Said Amy Sol, the Executive Director of NGF.  "As the new school year begins, we are pleased that we can use the money this fund drive to enroll students in the SmarterMe® Programs.".
