Brookfield, WI – June 5, 2021 – On June 8, 2021, the Elmbrook Education Foundation, in partnership with James Savage, President and Founder of Concurrency, Inc. and an Elmbrook alumnus, BCHS Key Club, BEHS Student Council, and BEHS Spartan Union will present a check to the Elmbrook School District for $28,809 for the Elmbrook Connect Initiative.
The Elmbrook Connect Initiative is a program to provide internet access to those students without the means to purchase it. Savage modeled what it means to pay it forward, by stepping up to provide a $10,000 fundraising matching grant.
“I’m honored to support EEF’s Elmbrook Connect initiative and proud to present these funds to the district,” states Savage. “Reliable home internet access is a key component of student success and these funds will directly support efforts to improve access for those in need.”
EEF was organized in 1958 to award scholarships to select Brookfield High School graduates. In 1999, the Foundation’s mission expanded to include teacher grants for innovative projects that benefit all students and raise money to support and strengthen outstanding learning ideas that improve the overall educational quality of our public schools. EEF has awarded over $1,400,000 in scholarships and over $500,000 in grants which enhance and extend the established curriculum and support projects that are beyond the District’s budget.
