UC Merced received a $33,000 donation from Citi to support its Center for Educational Partnership's Parent Empowerment Program — $10,000 will fund the continued support of high schools in Madera and $23,000 will be used to start a new program in Stanislaus County at Grace Davis, Modesto and Turlock high schools.
Over the years, the financial corporation has shown a strong commitment to supporting educational programs that prepare students for college and careers.
“Citi is committed to expanding access to higher education for underserved individuals and families,” said Brian Hepburn, managing director and division manager for Citibank’s Growth Markets Division. “Education is at the heart of economic empowerment, and through the Center for Educational Partnerships’ innovative program more California students will have the opportunity to pursue a college degree.”
