Support Humana Grant Still Benefits Non-Profit - 10 Years Later :D
For Chicago's WITS tutoring program, the real benefit of a Humana Foundation grant isn't just the money, it's the message.
In 2003, WITS (Working in the Schools) received a $100,000 Humana Communities Benefit grant to support the organization's work matching volunteer tutors with struggling students in 27 Chicago-area public schools. WITS Executive Director Brenda Palm said that, in addition to the money, "Humana activated their workforce to come out and volunteer in WITS programs.
Establishing that partnership served as a tremendous launch pad that allowed us to go to our other members of the corporate community and say, 'Humana has done this, they're in a leadership role when it comes to helping our students. Join them. Join us.'"
