The OneWest Foundation, the philanthropic arm of OneWest Bank, awarded $200,000 to support the education nonprofit MIND Research Institute’s Orange County Math Initiative, a community partnership designed to improve the educational outcomes of students in Orange County, Calif. Launched in 2008 through a collaboration between the Orange County Department of Education, local corporate and foundation partners and MIND Research Institute, the Math Initiative is now helping 63,000 K-12 students at 107 Orange County elementary schools with MIND’s innovative, visual math instructional software. OneWest Foundation’s recent grant will fund the continued work of the Initiative, which is elevating the math achievement of some of the county’s most disadvantaged children.
