Meg Stallard, president of the board of the Yolo Community Foundation, announced that nine Yolo County programs for youth will be funded this year through the Buck Education Grant Program of the Yolo Community Foundation. The former Frank H. and Eva Buck Foundation provided the Yolo Community Foundation with nearly $240,000 to grant out to the community. There will be two more granting cycles in the coming years.
The grants are designed to enhance and develop local science, technology, engineering, arts and math programs, also known as STEAM, support parent engagement efforts, and grow literacy programs for youth from preschool through high school. Thirty-four organizations applied for funding in this competitive second grant cycle of the program.
Grants were awarded to Center for Land-Based Learning, Davis Arts Center, Davis Joint Unified School District Children’s Center, Mariachi Puente, Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, Tuleyome, West Sacramento Friends of the Library, Winters Participation Gallery for the Arts, and Woodland United Way.
“The Yolo Community Foundation is delighted to be able to continue to make these grants to support our youth and the organizations that work with them. We look forward to seeing impacts from these innovative programs throughout the county,” said Stallard.]]>
