C&N recognized the importance of investing in local education with donations totaling $800,000 to area educational improvement, scholarship and prekindergarten scholarship organizations.
The donations were made under the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC).
Education is key to a strong and prosperous community. However, there are many budgetary roadblocks preventing children from receiving the level of education they deserve. C&N is committed to closing this gap by supporting local organizations that have made it their mission to ensure every child has access to educational opportunities.
By investing in youth, C&N puts local economies on the path to sustained growth and creates more opportunities to thrive.
