New Haven Schools Foundation awards $20,000 in grants to NHUSD schools

The New Haven Schools Foundation (NHSF) delivered 15 grants totaling almost $20,000 to teachers and classrooms during the month of May. This annual tradition recognizes innovative ideas for learning that may not be covered by normal classroom and school budgets, and winning a grant is an exciting event for the student and teacher beneficiaries.

Three types of grants were distributed:
• Innovations in Education – classroom grants for teachers.
• Project: Enrichment – grants for co- and extra-curricular programs.
• Brian Kelly Tutoring Grants – grants awarded primarily to tutoring programs.

Teachers and administrators in the New Haven Unified School District were given the opportunity to apply for a grant during the month of March. The students who will benefit from the grants are primarily residents of Union City and south Hayward. Money for these grants comes from donations to the Foundation and proceeds from fundraising events. Funding for programs underwritten by the Brian Kelly program come from donations from the Kelly Family.
