BOSTON — The Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation has begun accepting applications for grants that seek to improve the quality of education for children in kindergarten through grade 12 as part of its annual “Targeted Grants” program.
Dubbed “K-12 Student Success,” the Charitable Foundation is looking for non-profits to submit proposals that fund programs or initiatives aimed at improving the quality of childhood education between kindergarten through Grade 12.
“There’s no greater contribution we can make to our communities than ensuring that all our children have equal access to a quality education and a bright future,” said Laura Kurzrok, Executive Director of the Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation.
The Charitable Foundation plans to award grants ranging from $10,000 to $50,000, with the majority of the awards granted in the $10,000 to $15,000 range. The grants will be reviewed annually and requests must be submitted by March 1, 2014. For more information and to apply for a grant, please visit: www.easternbank.com/foundation.
Last year, the Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation donated nearly $1 million in targeted grant giving to organizations that address Workforce Development training.
