Note:  We are evaluating our grant process and will provide updated information as soon as that process is completed....  Generally, grant applications are due by April 1st of each year.  However, recent grant activity has caused us to re-think the deadline and evaluate our ability to make grants throughout the calendar year. 

Kent Community Foundation Grants at Work

Below is a testimonial regarding KCF's grant sponsorship of Opening Doors to the World Through Non-Fiction Reading at Kent School District's East Hill Elementary.

Twenty-five students directly participated in the project (that was my target audience) Also, many of their parents and siblings participated when the materials were taken home.  We also shared some of the materials with other grade 3 students and some of the National Geographic Magazines will be used again with next year?s students.

I would definitely repeat this activity.  The students gained valuable information from the current event magazines.  Many of our students at our school do not get a chance to travel, have newspapers or magazines in their homes or are able to keep up with current events around the world.  These resources were a way to add background information to all students? lives.

My principal was so impressed with the materials and how they were being used in the classroom, that she is going to use building funds next year so all classrooms in our school will be able to receive the Time for Kids weekly newspaper. 

Thank you for your support of my project-Opening Doors to the World Through Nonfiction Reading and giving it a beginning here at East Hill.  Your generosity this year, has allowed all students at our school to benefit next year.
