International Student Exchange Donates $100,000 to Children Incorporated
Donation will expand partnership with new program to support families in U.S.
Children Incorporated is honored to announce its collaboration with International Student Exchange (ISE), a worldwide organization that unites students from abroad with host families in the United States. At their 2017 Celebration of Success being held in Madrid, Spain on November 10, 2017, ISE will present Children Incorporated’s President and CEO Ron Carter with a check with a check in amount of $100,000 to be used to assist with Children Incorporated’s projects in the U.S.
ISE Senior Program Director Tal Stanecky said “After researching numerous non-profit organizations with the intent of finding one that was similar in mission and purpose to ISE, I ultimately concluded that Children Incorporated was the best fit for this partnership opportunity.” According to Stanecky, “ISE is impressed with the amount of total expenses apportioned solely to funding programs and services. I definitely see a long-term partnership and several future opportunities.”
Children Incorporated’s Director of U.S Programs, Renee Kube, and President and CEO Carter welcomed Stanecky and Mr. Wayne Brewer, Chief Executive Officer of ISE to Children Incorporated’s headquarters in North Chesterfield, Virginia earlier this year. Of their new affiliation Carter says “I am so impressed with ISE. The organization does incredible work all around the globe, and I look very forward to the projects we will undertake together in the coming year.”
