For more than 50 years, the Kumon after-school academic enrichment program has been helping children achieve success worldwide.  Since opening in 2013, our Kumon Center strives for the same success, motivating all of our students to perform at their highest potential.  We strive to instill in children the desire to achieve success, the ability to work independently, and a love of learning that will last a lifetime.

Kumon Math and Reading Center is one of the many recipients of the Mainstreet Preservation Grant. According to the owner, “With the Covid-19 pandemic, our business has been impacted and all the students have stopped coming in. We did assign work to be done at home and we tried to help via phone or Zoom, however a lot of parents have requested to discontinue until things get better. We have around 30 employees that we want to help, a fixed rent to pay and other overheads to take care of.

“The Mainstreet Preservation Grant was truly a godsend. One of our Kumon parents (client) had mentioned it the day before the closing date and we are truly thankful. With revenue down and our PPP help yet to come in, we are able to use the Mainstreet Preservation Grant for our rent and utilities. Again, we are very grateful to the Salt Lake Chamber for helping us out in our time of need.”

The Mainstreet Preservation Grant, provided by the Salt Lake Chamber’s Utah Job Opportunities Foundation, is made possible thanks to a $500,000 donation from WCF Insurance. The grant funds are used to support rural and/or minority small businesses in Utah that need immediate assistance due to the COVID-19 and before federal stimulus funding is accessed. These grant funds are intended to help businesses in the short-term. To donate or learn more about the Mainstreet Preservation Grant, visit
