FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Community Grant from the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Sends New York Inner-City Students to Washington DC
Boston, MA, May 9, 2011 – The Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp., a nonprofit,
tax-exempt entity established by attorneys from Brown Rudnick LLP, has awarded a
Community Grant to PS 335 Granville T. Woods, a Brooklyn, New York public school serving grades PK-5. The grant will help fund an educational school trip to Washington DC to visit the White House and other historic sites.
According to Meghan Dunn, a PS 335 Granville T. Woods 4th grade teacher and grant applicant, "Since Barack Obama’s presidential inauguration, my students have wanted to visit our Capital City, but we don’t have the means to embark on this field trip. Recently, PS 335 was recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School for making extraordinary progress in student achievement, and our state senators promised to provide White House tours, so we are determined to go to Washington. We are grateful to the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation for its Community Grant, which will enable us to fulfill a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for my students.”
Al Wallis, Executive Director of the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp., commented, "We are pleased to support PS 335’s educational field trip given the unique circumstances. An experience like this for students who, in some cases, have rarely been out of Brooklyn which will provide valuable lessons in US history, government, and cultureand will enrich their lives for years to come.”
Created to support front-line educators who often do not have a voice in funding decisions, the Community Grants subsidize small, concrete projects, which will improve inner-city education within Boston, Hartford, Providence, New York or Washington DC within the coming year. The Foundation will generally consider grant applications monthly and award grants in an amount totaling not more than $2000 in any one month. The grant applications and an explanation of the program can be found at www.brownrudnickcenter.com/foundation/communitygrant.asp.
