Our Dynamic Team

Motivation and Purpose

Close The Gap Foundation consists of dedicated and professional educators that have impacted our communities one child at a time. Now we are striving to make an even bigger impact in the community classrooms. Positive change and progress can't happen without people. If not us, who? If not now, when? We are excited about this new journey.
