The Foundation’s grant-making focus is to fund significant programs and projects addressing campus-wide goals that are both substantial and achievable. The Foundation annually gives large grants targeting each campus’s particular needs and priorities, as identified by the school’s own leadership team.
- At Estancia, foundation grants have fully funded the Apprentice Program – a new comprehensive support system for incoming freshmen, and provided support for the school’s Puente program for high achieving Hispanic students. Foundation grants have funded the purchase of ancillary materials for Mathematics, books for literature circles, smart boards, computer labs, and cutting edge technology for classroom use, among other things.
- At TeWinkle, foundation grants have provided up to date technology in nearly every classroom, including smart boards and LCD projectors. Foundation grants have also met the school’s need for extensive Social Study reference materials available for student use in the library.
