The Junior League presented a check for $10,000 to the school board to be used to enhance education for local students. In partnership with the Bay Education Foundation, the League will fund approximately forty classroom grants to Bay District teachers to improve academic performance in local schools.
"We're always happy to provide funding for this program," says Stacie Galbreath, president of the Junior League. "The impact is huge, with more than 12,000 kids touched through these projects."
Teachers and other educators apply for funds in the fall and grants are awarded at the end of October.
"We appreciate the opportunity to partner with the Junior Service League," says David Powell, president of the Bay Education Foundation. "We can provide matching funds for their donation and create a lot of opportunity for students."
Both the Junior League and the Bay Education Foundation are local non-profit organizations who support to school and community improvement.
