Sammons Financial Group has donated $50,000 to the Children and Family Urban Movement (CFUM), a non-profit organization that supports children and families through academic programs in the Des Moines community.
The donated funds will allow CFUM to upgrade its technology infrastructure for both staff and participating youth to better meet the needs of computer technology in the classroom.
"The impact of the grant funds from Sammons Financial Group has been transformational in myriad ways that can be seen and measured, including better access to educational resources and learning opportunities for 120 children and youth, which will undoubtedly impact their academic success," said Carmen Lampe Zeitler, Executive Director at CFUM. "That is one of the things that Sammons does best. With its commitment and investment in the community, Sammons makes us all feel that our life together and our mutual success is of great value and worthy of investment."
CFUM provides out-of-school programs for children and youth kindergarten through high school, with their core mission focusing on the long-term growth of community youth and families in the Des Moines area.
"We consider it a privilege to participate in the worthy mission of the Children and Family Urban Movement," said Cindy Reed, President, Sammons Annuity Group, a division of Sammons Financial Group. "Their services to children, youth and families strengthen the fabric of the Des Moines community in which our employees work and live."
