San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 17, 2011
Underground Elephant, a provider of end-to-end customer acquisition solutions, announced today its Gold Level pledge to the Imagine America Foundation (IAF). The company will donate $25,000 to the foundation’s 21st Century Workforce Fund to further enhance IAF’s research agenda and growing scholarship programs, helping colleges and universities enroll, educate and graduate more students annually.
“Every donation to the Imagine America Foundation takes us closer to accomplishing our goals. Some contributions, though, move us forward in huge steps,” said Robert Martin, President of IAF, in response to Underground Elephant’s donation to the fund. “This contribution will be used to grant an increased number of scholarships and will enable us to extend our research capabilities.”
The 21st Century Workforce Fund is a multi-year fundraising campaign aimed at raising $5 million. With Underground Elephant’s contribution, the IAF will have raised $3.8 million toward this goal.
Underground Elephant is a supporter and advocate for its clients in the educational space and is dedicated to improving the futures of students through increased enrollments and retention rates. In the last month, the company has partnered with organizations such as the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities (APSCU), the California Association of Private Postsecondary Schools (CAPPS) and the Pennsylvania Association of Private School Administrators (PAPSA) in order to further support their existing and prospective clients’ best interests.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to support Imagine America’s goal of providing valuable educational and career outcomes for students,” said Jason Kulpa, CEO of Underground Elephant.
