Boston, MA, December 14, 2016 – 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 Martin Van Buren High School in Queens Village, NY. The grant will help purchase a much-needed copy machine for the school’s library.
Gerri Calandro, Martin Van Buren High School’s Library Media Specialist and grant applicant, said “The addition of a professional copy machine for our library will be greatly appreciated. It will be used to support the students and staff and is going to be a major benefit for the school’s library.”
Al Wallis, Executive Director of the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp, said, “We understand how a quality library can make a difference for students and help them succeed. We are happy to support the Martin Van Buren High School library and its students and staff.”
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.
