Take the Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp. Matching Gift Challenge!

The Education Foundation has secured a $150,000 matching gift challenge grant from Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp., headquartered in Malibu - the largest corporate gift to the Education Foundation to date. For every donation made to the Education Foundation through December 20 of this year, D&B Credibility Corp. will make a dollar-for-dollar matching contribution, up to $150,000. Your $25 donation becomes $50 and $500 becomes $1,000! There's no better time to donate to SMMEF to support the SMMUSD Vision for Student Success (VSS) - double your impact by donating at www.smmef.org. In order to fund the VSS programs at all schools next year, we must raise $4 million by January 31, 2014!


For more about VSS, and what it means for your school, go to www.smmef.org.
