Boston Partners in Education (Boston Partners), a nonprofit that supports Boston Public Schools (BPS) students, held a check presentation ceremony at the Eliot K-8 Innovation School last week to celebrate a $5,000 donation from Salus Capital Partners (Salus).
“Our organization brings people from our community into the schools, and I like to say that we’re connectors,” said Pamela Civins, Executive Director of Boston Partners in Education. “We connect students to someone from the neighborhood to help with reading, writing and math. But we also connect Boston Public Schools to companies like Salus Capital, who are great supporters of our work.”
As a corporate partner, Salus participates in Boston Partners’ reading mentoring program Power Lunch, as well as in The Big Cheese Reads. At the Big Cheese Reads Gala in May, Salus announced the donation will go toward funding robotics kits for the Eliot Upper School. Today the asset management company got to see their investment in action.
Public schools in Boston, and nationwide are recognizing the many benefits of implementing STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) programs into their curricula— and thankfully, so are investors.
“We love investing in the community and investing in young students,” said Andrew Moser, President & CEO of Salus Capital Partners. “I think the future is born in the classroom, so we love investing in the future.”
