“At Dynasty, we are extremely passionate about financial literacy and deeply committed to the community of St. Petersburg,” said Mason Salit, Chief Talent Officer of Dynasty. “We had the opportunity to partner with Academy Prep and Electus on their new Earn, Invest, Save and Spend program. After seeing first hand the impact on the students, we knew Academy Prep was an organization we wanted to partner with and an effective way to invest in our community.”
Academy Prep Center of St. Petersburg is a private 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving Southside St. Petersburg, a community that has long endured the disadvantages of generational poverty and inequitable educational opportunities. The tuition-free middle school’s mission is to inspire and empower students qualifying for need-based scholarships to become future community leaders through a rigorous middle school program coupled with ongoing graduate support.
An integral part of the Academy Prep model, Graduate Support works closely with scholars for up to eight years through high school and college, monitoring their academic progress, and helping to address any challenges in their academic or personal lives ensuring successful transitions and outcomes. Through intensive nurturing and guidance, Graduate Support emphasizes focus on positive life choices, a college-going culture, and the development of life goals while ensuring that students master academic and enrichment courses at the highest levels.
“Like Dynasty Financial Partners, Academy Prep’s Graduate Support also powers independence by developing well-rounded, educated, and responsible adults, who are equipped to fulfill their roles as community leaders, and in turn will have a positive social and economic impact on our communities. We are grateful for this generous gift to our program from such a committed and dedicated community partner,” said Desmond Baker, Director of Graduate Support at Academy Prep Center of St. Petersburg.
Dynasty Financial Partners and Academy Prep will commemorate this Matching Gift Challenge on Saturday, August 6th at 11:30 am with an official check presentation during the school’s Annual Graduate Reunion, and held on campus located at 2301 22nd Avenue South, St. Petersburg, FL 33712.
