$100,000 Matching Grant Donated to LA Unified School District

On Saturday, Dec. 13, 2014, several Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp. employees attended the CyberGirlz Summit at Cal Poly Pomona’s College of Business to present their first-ever donation to the Los Angeles Unified School District, through the EdAhead® program.

The $100,000 matching grant challenge will support the Beyond the Bell CyberPatriot and CyberGirlz programs, and will enable the CyberGirlz program to provide critical resources to train young women in technology and cyber security. Funds will be used to develop new teams of high school girls and provide additional support to the young women who have already committed to the CyberGirlz teams.

In addition, the company’s donation will be used to expand the Middle School program from eight to 15 participating schools.

“Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp is thrilled to help Los Angeles Unified School District support young women interested in pursuing technology and engineering. Our EdAhead® program was created to fuel the next generation of thinkers, doers and innovators, and the CyberGirlz and CyberPatriot programs are doing exactly that. We encourage other local businesses to join us in support of public education in the local Los Angeles area.” said Jeff Stibel, Chairman and CEO of Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp.
