The MIND Research Institute, a Santa Ana-based educational nonprofit, received a $200,000 grant from OneWest Foundation for the program’s Orange County Math Initiative.
The donation from OneWest Bank will help MIND provide more than 63,000 K-12 students at 107 elementary schools throughout Orange County with their visual math instructional software.
“With the investment of corporations such as OneWest in the Orange County Math Initiative, MIND is able to bring our proven approach to math education to tens of thousands of children,” said MIND CEO Ted Smith.
The schools will receive unlimited access to the software, which can be used in both the classroom and on students’ home computers.
“This recent investment in the MIND Research Institute fulfills our original vision of building stronger communities by supporting a program that is truly improving education in Orange County and across the nation,” said Steven Mnuchin, chairman of OneWest Bank.
