On Tuesday night, March 20, the Somerset Foundation approved two grants. First, the Board approved up to $2,000 in funding for the Somerset Elementary School pantry, which provides food and essentials to Somerset families in need. Next, the Board approved up to $4,000 in grants to Title I schools within Montgomery County.
These grants build on funding that the Foundation approved at its previous meeting in January. On January 30, 2018, the Board approved $1,000 to help fund educational field trips for students at Capt. James E. Daly Elementary School in Germantown, MD. That evening the Board also approved $3,750 in grants for programs at Somerset Elementary School, including funds to help support Somerset’s popular STEM and Reading nights.
These grants were made possible through the generosity of the Somerset community, donating money through Foundation initiatives like the annual fall fundraising drive and the annual spring party. The Foundation thanks the Somerset community for its support!
