PwC Charitable Foundation Provides $25,000 Grant to Alpine Learning Group to Fund Financial Literacy
PARAMUS, NJ - In December, the PwC Charitable Foundation donated $25,000 to the Alpine Learning Group to fund the development and implementation of a financial literacy curriculum for learners with autism. In addition to the financial contribution, the people of PwC will volunteer and work with Alpine students to help increase their financial literacy over the coming months.
“Our people care about the communities in which they live and work, and our culture of giving is a distinctive point of pride at PwC,” said PwC Partner Adam Katz. “Whether through the volunteer efforts or financial contributions of our people, or through the charitable efforts of our firm and the PwC Charitable Foundation, our outreach aims to increase the collective impact we can make. Alpine has made a difference in our community and we feel fortunate to be able to contribute to that impact.”
“We are truly grateful for the generous donation from the PwC Charitable Foundation,” said Dr. Bridget Taylor, co-founder and CEO of Alpine Learning Group. “These funds will assist in the implementation of the financial literacy curriculum for our learners. And we welcome PwC volunteers who would like to work with our students to help them learn the importance of money management.”
