Founder and CEO of Dynamic Search Partners, Keith Mann held a fundraiser event for a charter school organization called Uncommon Schools. The fundraiser was held at the Standard Hotel Beer Garden in Manhattan under the famous High Line park of New York City. Prominent members of the New York financial community came together and managed to raise over $22,000 for charter schools. The money raised at the event in New York will be spent on student testing needs at a newly constructed school in New York City.
Uncommon Schools is a network of charter schools in three states, New York State, Massachusetts and New Jersey. Major cities that the organization operates in includes New York City, New York, Boston, Massachusetts, Camden, New Jersey Newark, New Jersey, Rochester, New York and Troy, New York. The goal of the Uncommon Schools charter system is to eliminate the achievement gap that currently exists in poor inner city communities throughout New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts. In addition, Uncommon Schools prepares students to graduate from high school and attend college. This is something that is currently lacking severely in many urban cities in the United States. Uncommon Schools is changing this trend one school and one student at a time.
In addition to the $22,000 that Keith Mann and his firm have raised during the fundraiser, Mr. Mann has already donated $10,000 to Uncommon Schools to cover testing for all of the pupils enrolled in the charter schools. Dynamic Search Partners has been in a partnership with Uncommon Schools since 2013. The company donates money to the charter school system, and works with students to develop a path to college and eventually a steady job that will help break the cycle of poverty that many inner city students face. CEO of Dynamic Search Partners says that he enjoys interacting and seeing the work and progress that Uncommon Schools has achieved so far and continues to do.
