NKY Organizations Receive Grants from Greater Cincinnati Foundation
Greater Cincinnati Foundation (GCF) awarded nearly $445,000 in Supporting Educational Success grants to 19 nonprofit organizations within its eight-county region.
These grants support innovative in- and out-of-school educational programs that reduce disparities in educational attainment or that increase social emotional learning and health for students of color and/or those of low socioeconomic status. Funding can be used to maintain, expand or strengthen existing programs, enact capital improvements, launch a new program, or build organizational capacity.
“Our Supporting Educational Success grant recipients have demonstrated that their innovative initiatives positively influence educational outcomes for our youth,” said Ellen M. Katz, GCF President/CEO. “On behalf of our generous donors, we are proud to invest in the work they do, as it is foundational to creating a more equitable region for all.”
