The Corvallis Public Schools Foundation announced today that it is granting $74,000 to schools this fall to support enrichment and students navigating poverty and homelessness.
Enrichment funds will launch or sustain an array of innovative projects and programs across all schools. Major areas of emphasis include health and wellness, sustainability, literacy and the arts, science, technology, engineering and math, and more. A full list of the funded grants can be found here.
In addition to enrichment grants, the Foundation is granting $22,500 to assist students who qualify for free and reduced-price lunch or who are experiencing homelessness. These funds provide supplemental food, health and hygiene supplies, clothing, emergency transportation, and other resources to facilitate full participation in school.
“We are pleased to direct resources toward areas that are making a real difference for students,” said Foundation Chair Mike Sheets. “These funds give our educators a wonderful chance to think outside the box to enhance learning and engage hard-to-reach kids.”
The Corvallis Public Schools Foundation was founded in 1996 with the mission to support local schools and inspire learning for a lifetime. Visit the Foundation on the web at www.cpsfoundation.org.
