PwC announced today that its Minneapolis branch has donated $90,000 to four local non-profit organizations, made possible by grants from the PwC Charitable Foundation, Inc. The grants work in tandem with the professional services firm's Earn Your Future campaign - a program dedicated to addressing youth education through a combination of donations and skills-based volunteer programs across the country.
The four non-profits include Best Prep, an organization dedicated to preparing students with business, career, and financial literacy skills; Playworks Minnesota, committed to creating safe playground facilities for kids; Camp Fire MN, aimed at providing learning experiences for young people and their families through outdoor and community programs; and AchieveMpls, an organization preparing students academically by providing the resources, skills and social capital necessary to succeed post-high school.
"PwC Minneapolis is proud to extend our support in developing quality learning and social experiences for our youth through these grants from the PwC Charitable Foundation," said Tom Montminy, managing partner of PwC's greater Minneapolis market. "The success of our kids today will determine the future success of our community, and through our Earn Your Future campaign, we are fully dedicated to promoting youth education and helping provide the right resources for developing our future leaders."
Since its creation in June 2012, Earn Your Future has involved more than 27,000 active and retired partners and staff, donating $43 million in support of youth-related causes.
