Duke Energy and Reading Is Fundamental (RIF), the nation’s largest children’s literacy organization, are partnering to minimize the summer slide and improve the reading proficiency of more than 3,000 current second graders in South Carolina.
Duke Energy today announced grants totaling $500,000 from the Water Resources Fund to be shared equally between the Community Foundation of the Dan River Region's RiverBank Fund and the Rockingham County (N.C.) Community Foundation to continue environmental enhancements and economic development along the river basin.
Duke Energy is investing nearly $1.4 million to jumpstart job readiness through grants to 26 education and nonprofit organizations focused on developing a highly qualified workforce and connecting job seekers with North Carolina employers.
Parents and educators agree that today’s children will become tomorrow’s leaders only if they have access to the skills, experiences, behaviors and relationships that help them develop into healthy and successful adults.
Duke Energy is offering to help teachers develop new, engaging ways to help students reach their full learning potential. Through a $75,000 matching gift to DonorsChoose.org, the Duke Energy Foundation is teaming up with teachers to turn classroom projects into a reality.
