ContextMedia donates TV to Cabrini Connections

Thanks to ContextMedia, a beautiful 32" flat-screen television has a new home - on the wall at Cabrini Connections! Chicago-based ContextMedia builds waiting room TV networks that empower healthcare professionals to educate and inspire their patients as they make critical decisions about their lifestyle and clinical treatment. At Cabrini Connections, they have empowered us to educate and inspire over 70 students and 85 volunteers who come to our center on a weekly basis. Everyone has been impressed by the TV so far (lots of oooh's and aaah's) as we have already started to stream announcements.

This is just one example of how a business can step up to help a tutor/mentor program. Leaders in sectors of education, finance, technology, etc. should be looking for ways to pair their assets with needy nonprofits. A simple donation such as this can lead to a long-term relationship. Until more corporations and businesses make pledges to support tutor/mentor programs like Cabrini Connections, we will continue to struggle each year to keep our doors open.

If you are interested in learning more about business involvement, I encourage you to read some of these articles on Tutor/Mentor Blog. Thanks!

  1. This is a great example. We hope others in different industries will spend time innovating ways to help us, and other tutor/mentor programs, have a greater impact on kids. Thank you Context Media!
