Boston, MA, April 26, 2018 – The Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp., a nonprofit, tax-exempt entity established by attorneys from the law firm of Brown Rudnick LLP, has awarded a Community Grant to Community Arts and Media High School in Brooklyn, New York. The school will use grant dollars to join the MyLibraryNYC Program, which provides participating New York schools with enhanced library services, including fine-free student and educator library cards, school delivery and access to digital resources.
Michael Cunningham Community Arts and Media High School librarian and grant applicant, said, “Over the last three years, the number of current reading materials in our school library has dwindled. Thanks to the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Community Grant, our students will now have greater access to library resources from the New York library system.”
Al Wallis, Executive Director of the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp. said, “We believe that school libraries have a positive impact on a student’s academic development and performance. We are happy to help the Community Arts and Media High School participate in the MyLibraryNYC program to provide students access to the proper resources he or she needs.”
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, London, Orange County, Providence, New York City, 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.
