Counting Down the Top 40 Foundation Grants of All Time #12: Spanish Language Resources

When the Foundation started out 40 years ago, it had two main goals: enhance academics and preserve programs endangered by budget cuts.

The Spanish program in all our schools is a prime example of both. 

Over the years, the Foundation has funded numerous grants applied for by Spanish teachers, from new technology to books to a professional development trip to Spain. 

Not that long ago, though, in the midst of a recession, the entire elementary world language program was on the chopping block. Thanks to the generosity of our community, and the tireless work of EGRNow volunteers, the Foundation provided more than $250,000 in the 2017-2018 school year to preserve the world language program and provide kindergarten and 1st grade paraeducators (more on that later in the countdown).

Gracias, donantes de la FundaciĆ³n, por hacer esto posible. You can help support our mission of investing in educational enhancements for all our students on our Donate page.
