Non-Profit Donates $250,000 to Students in Washington State
InvestED, one of the state’s leading education non-profit organizations, is taking immediate action to support students displaced and negatively affected by the COVID-19 school shutdown. The $250,000 will be allocated immediately among school districts statewide and used to meet the immediate needs of low-income students. Particular attention will be focused on nutritional health and enabling remote learning.
InvestED provides nearly $1 million to more than 600 secondary schools statewide, annually, and helps nearly 25,000 low-income students. The new InvestED COVID-19 Student Fund will be managed to support state and district leaders as they work to address (1) Nutrition and (2) Opportunities for Extended Learning. These are two urgent and critical areas that have been identified by the state where we can help, but educators will have flexibility on how to use the funds to best serve local students.
