Although our organization benefits many local youth projects, the Teacher Grant Program has led to a valuable partnership with teachers from many local schools who apply for grant money to provide unique experiences for their students. In turn, the teachers keep us informed of the needs and problems they face as they work with our children in an era of rapidly shrinking funding. The non profit status of the foundation has allowed us to improve our fund raising efforts.
