At Myriad at My Home Group, we love giving back to the community that we work in.
When you refer a friend to us, we'll donate a percentage of the commission on that purchase or sale to CASA Academy, a school that provides low income students with the early academic foundation and character skills necessary to graduate from college and succeed in life.
Everyone who refers us business will be invited to a special recognition dinner at the end of the year where we'll recognize who referred the most.
Our goal is to donate $5,000 by the end of 2018.
In 2012, Jenna Leahy and Tacey Clayton met and immediately connected over the injustice they witnessed in their classrooms— even in the primary grades, students from low-income communities were not entering or progressing at the same rate as their higher income peers. Unfortunately, their experiences were not unique: on average, low-income students are already two years behind by the time they reach the fourth grade.
They decided to join forces, driven by a common mission—to raise the bar for education in Arizona. Their drive and persistence resulted in over $950,000 in start-up funding. Together, they visited over 50 of the top-performing schools across the country to learn best practices before submitting their charter application, which was unanimously approved in January of 2014. After countless months of knocking on neighborhood doors in the stifling summer heat, CASA opened to a record number of students on August 4, 2014.
Each year, CASA Academy must raise more than $125,000 to make up for the deficit caused by Arizona’s half-funding per kindergartner policy. By donating to CASA, you will be providing children in our local Phoenix community with a quality education and a college-bound attitude that will continuously push them to achieve their goals. With over 130,000 students in the area, CASA’s program allows for their scholars to excel in school with an academic approach designed to advance in all subjects. CASA also welcomes any student-regardless of race, ethnicity, income-level, and language. They will embrace any student who walks through the door and will never charge a cent for tuition.
At Myriad, we believe in supporting a school that is educating children and creating empowered citizens that are ready for success in college, life, and society. Together, we can not only impact children's futures, but we can also make a difference in our local community and the entire world.
