Sources of Funding
Each year our tax credit partners donate tens of thousands of dollars to support STEM + A-Rts in our schools, like the new guitar program in the humanities rotation.
The Foundation has written several successful grants to provide world-class STEM curriculum and learning materials. Multiple funders supported the mural / mosaic project that was created for and installed in Apollo borough.
Members support the Innovative Projects Grants. Each year classroom teachers are eligible to receive up to $500 to institute a new learning opportunity for their students. A memorial donation is funding a 6th grade field trip to the Heinz History Center.
