2015 Grants

In 2015, we awarded 21 grants including "Makerspace on the Move" and "Mapdemoneum Relaunch". The Foundation also funded PROJECT LAUNCH, a new initiative at Heritage School centered around the idea of project/problem-based learning. Students at Heritage will be engaged in meaningful projects that span multiple curricular areas (Language Arts, Social Studies, Music, Art, etc) and produce authentic products that involve our global community. The result will be more powerful and connected learning, as well an emphasis on college/career-readiness skills such as collaboration, critical thinking/inquiry and self-direction.
