Across the country, people are experiencing dramatic shifts in their daily lives as a result of COVID-19. With extended school closures, we anticipate significant impacts on families throughout our community. While the immediate future may be uncertain, we know that the needs will be great for our students and their families. In response to this crisis, we’ve launched the CMS COVID-19 Relief Fund to ensure all students continue to have access to learning while schools are closed and to help address critical needs CMS families may experience during this time.
We’re providing 6,000 hotspots and prepaid internet service to students without home connectivity. In addition to increasing student connectivity, we’ll be working with district leaders and support staff to identify critical family needs and help get funds where they’re needed most. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools will also be providing grab-and-go meals for students at select schools sites.
The CMS Foundation works to generate financial investment to support Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools and develop a community-wide culture of schoolanthropy—the support of public education. Our mission is to serve as the trusted bridge between CMS and the donor community.
We are a nonprofit too. Donate to Giving Compass to help us guide donors toward practices that advance equity.
