Jan. 28, 2021: The Bronxville School Foundation is pleased to announce the start of its 2021 grant cycle. Faculty, administrators, staff, students, parents, and community members are invited to submit grant applications.
The Foundation is eager to support grant requests that enable students to lead, to innovate, to engage the world, and to think critically, particularly during these uniquely challenging times. The deadline for grant applications is March 1, 2021.
The Foundation’s mission is to raise community funds in order to provide resources beyond the district’s budget across Bronxville’s Elementary, Middle and High Schools. Since its inception in 1991, the Foundation has awarded more than $11.2 million in grants that focus on piloting new programs, pursuing creative ideas, and providing equipment and facilities in the areas of science, arts, athletics, technology, and curriculum development.
“This year has presented significant challenges but those challenges have forced rapid advancements in many areas of technology and the re-examination or re-creation of ‘how things are done,’” said Won Giuriceo, who heads up the grants committee this year. “The Foundation is so impressed by and grateful for the efforts of the administration, faculty, and staff at the school. This year’s challenges have also emphasized the importance of connectivity at our schools and within our community. We at the Foundation are looking forward to partnering with the school to fund grant applications that will advance the school in these and other priority areas.”
The grant application, information about the application process, and summaries of recently approved grants are available on the Foundation’s website, www.BronxvilleSchoolFoundation.org.
For further information or inquiries, please contact vice president of grants, Won Giuriceo, at email@example.com, or the Foundation’s executive director, Helena McSherry, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
