Announcing the 2014 Excellence Through Equity Grant Awardees

The 2014 Excellence Through Equity Awards sponsored by the Hope Foundation 

The Hope Foundation has initiated the 2014 Excellence Through Equity Award Recognition Awards to recognize and support educational equity initiatives, and honor the dedication of those working on excellence through equity, and the Excellence Through Equity Innovative Action Award to serve as a catalyst to create new and innovative models for partnership, action, and impact around educational equity initiatives, models that work here and may be replicable in other communities.

The Innovative Action Award of $8,000 is granted to Beverly J. Martin Elementary School of the Ithaca City School District for a group of its students and teachers to participate in this year’s National Math Foundation Summer Institute at Ithaca College.

Recognition Awards of $1,000 each are granted to:

Groton Public Library

School Success Transportation Coalition

GIAC (Greater Ithaca Activities Center)

All awards will be presented at a very special program on April 29.

Major support for these grants in 2014 comes from the Hope Foundation with the grants review process administered by the Community Foundation. Additional support for these grants come from the Tompkins County Chamber of Commerce Foundation and the Community Foundation’s Social Justice field of interest fund.
