Monarch School, which educates students impacted by homelessness, has been awarded $5,000 from local company Cavignac & Associates through a national effort that recognizes community service efforts – and you can help double that amount by sharing the story on Facebook.
Cavignac & Associates earned the 2020 Make More Happen Award for its volunteer work with Monarch School and its commitment to improving the local community. The award, sponsored by Liberty Mutual Insurance Company® and Safeco Insurance®, includes a $5,000 donation with a chance to double the amount to $10,000, all of which will go directly to Monarch School.
The story of Cavignac & Associates and Monarch School is featured on the official Make More Happen microsite www.agentgiving.com/cavignac-associates giving the nonprofit a chance to earn the additional $5,000. If the story receives at least 500 shares to Facebook, the donation will be doubled to $10,000.
"We are so grateful to our friends at Cavignac & Associates and the generosity their employees have shown throughout the years," said San Diego County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Paul Gothold. "They have shown tremendous support for our students and are always looking for more ways to make a lasting impact. This donation will help Monarch continue to serve its students and families in a time of increased need, and we are so appreciative."
More than 22,2000 students in San Diego County are identified as homeless. Monarch School gives students impacted by homelessness the skills and tools they need to overcome these odds. Appreciating their unique and innovative approach to teaching, Cavignac & Associates has been involved with Monarch for eight years and continues to raise monetary donations, sponsor the Monarch Senior Prom, and donate time to staff and photograph the event. The agency also "adopts" a classroom each Christmas to help wrap special gifts to brighten their holiday.
“It brings tremendous pride to the Cavignac & Associates team knowing that we can support San Diego’s future during this unprecedented time,” said Jeff Cavignac, managing principal of Cavignac & Associates. “We are truly grateful to Liberty Mutual and Safeco for the Make More Happen Award because it is an incredible opportunity for us to provide much needed funds to support Monarch School’s important work.”
Throughout 2020, Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance will select a total of 34 independent agents nationwide for a Make More Happen Award donating up to $340,000 to the nonprofits they support. Agencies became eligible for the award by submitting an application demonstrating their commitment to a specific nonprofit, along with photos of a project they worked on.
