The Grable Foundation
Grants to Southwestern Pennsylvania nonprofits and schools for programs and projects that benefit local children and improve Pre-K through twelve education. Interested applicants must submit an inquiry by January 1, 2018.
Funding will be provided for proposals that focus on the following areas:
Early Childhood Development: Even before they start kindergarten, young children deserve to participate in rich learning experiences in high-quality settings, led by caring and well-trained adults. Parents should have access to the support they need to encourage their children's development.
Public Schools: From Pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade, schools should ignite students’ interests, stretch their abilities, and set the path toward a successful future. Students, teachers, principals, superintendents, parents, and community members each play a crucial role in this process.
Out-of-School Time: Children and youth should be able to choose from a variety of high-quality afterschool, summer, and mentoring programs that create vital opportunities for exploration, creativity, learning, and meaningful connections with caring adults.
Families: Young people and their families should have easy and frequent access to innovative learning and play spaces, community resources that support their well-being, and celebrations and cultural events that delight them — all designed with kids in mind.
Community: Children, families, and other caring adults should be able to draw upon a vibrant community of strong nonprofit organizations, capable leaders, and robust multimedia resources focused on helping them succeed.
