Jack Kent Cooke Foundation: Good Neighbor Grants
The Good Neighbor Grants program, an initiative of the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, seeks to identify and strengthen ties with youth-serving nonprofit organizations in the metropolitan Washington, DC, region, including the surrounding areas in Maryland and northern Virginia, that are helping students with significant financial need reach their full potential through education. Applying organizations should focus on K-12 education, college access and completion, or visual and performing arts education. Examples of eligible programs include after-school academic and summer enrichment opportunities, college access advising programs, arts programs, service learning, STEM programs, innovative programs that bridge education and technology, and internship programs. One-time grants of between $10,000 and $35,000 will be provided. The application deadline is December 3, 2015.
