Boys & Girls Clubs funded $20,000 for after school literacy program

Lincoln Financial Foundation’s grant furthers their focus on youth education.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia has received a $20,000 grant from the Lincoln Financial Foundation to support its Call to Action Literacy Initiative. This grant is in line with Lincoln Financial Foundation’s focus on giving in the arts, education, human services and economic/workforce development.

Utilizing a multi-sensory approach to learning, the Literacy Initiative incorporates auditory, visual and kinesthetic learning modalities that are often ignored by traditional methods of instruction. The Literacy Initiative provides instruction to participants with various learning styles, targeting the students most in need of additional assistance and providing them with the tools necessary to succeed.

“We are truly grateful to have such a generous and committed community partner! Lincoln Financial Foundation’s support of our Literacy Initiative will help ensure thousands of Philadelphia’s youth have access to literacy programming during the critical after school hours,” said Ariel Goldring, Executive Operations Officer, Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia.

This grant is part of Lincoln Financial’s annual $10 million investment in its local communities’ youth education, economic and workforce development, human well-being and arts programs. Philadelphia is one of six cities where Lincoln Financial Foundation has a strong business presence and is committed to local contribution, in addition to Concord, NH, Fort Wayne, IN, Greensboro, NC, and Omaha, NE.
