Grants Given in Spring 2009

Grant Summary

In the Spring of 2009 FUND69 approved 21 grants totaling  $13,686.47. We are thrilled that we were able to grant over $13,000 to the staff of District 69 for projects to enhance the quality of education for the students. This was only possible because of the many people who supported FUND69 by attending our events, donating money and donating items for our raffle or auction.
