Boston, MA, April 26, 2018 – For the second consecutive year, 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 Edwards Middle School in Boston The grant will again help fund a student publishing project in which 6th-grade students write personal narratives that will be published and shared with family, teachers, and community members. Specifically, the Community Grant will purchase publishing kits as part of their Common Core English/Language Arts class.
Stephanie Crement, Edwards Middle School English/Language Arts teacher and grant applicant said, “Thanks to the generosity of the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation, we are able to repeat this successful publishing project for the second consecutive year. My students are already looking forward to the experience!”
Al Wallis, Executive Director of the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp. said, “This unique publishing project is a powerful way for students to explore literature and see themselves as authors. We are pleased to support the Edwards Middle School again this year.”
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, 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.
