The Cypress Initiative is the organization that inspired the formation of the McVety Grant.

Cypress designed a two year (longitudinal) study to examine the impact of the phenomenal work they do with at risk children. This group, also the first to be funded, has delivered their Spark curriculum to 582 students at no extra cost to students and their families, they provide support at a local safe house for survivors of sex trafficking and are dedicated to providing services to anyone under the age of 18 free of charge – always!

The McVety Grant is proud to fund any Cypress Initiative research project and we consider their work an excellent example of what three principles organizations can accomplish within their communities, and for the communities they serve.
