CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2011 WINNERS!
BREAKTHROUGH SCHOOLS - $10,000 DONATION:
Breakthrough Schools is the highest-rated network of public charter schools in Cleveland, Ohio. They currently have 10 non-profit schools throughout Cleveland, and are opening our 11th school this year. Their five-year vision is to further Greater Cleveland’s transformation by providing distinctive school options for no fewer than 6,000 children in 19 schools. Their work, in partnership with CMSD and others, will help the city reach a tipping point towards providing a high-quality education for all. I am proud to help support them on behalf of the CHRMF and provide them with this $10,000 donation.
