This week, the student trustees of The Artemis Fund awarded grants to four local youth services organizations. This year’s recipients are Second Chances Wildlife Center, I Would Rather Be Reading, The Lincoln Foundation, and The Backside Learning Center.
The Artemis Fund is administered by students enrolled in the upper school Philanthropy course. During the class, students learn the history of philanthropy, organize fundraisers, review grant requests, and conduct interviews before making their final decisions. The Fund, whose mission is to support organizations that encourage the development of youth in the community, has been awarding grants for nearly 20 years.
Throughout the third trimester, students have reviewed grant applications and met (virtually) with representatives from the organizations seeking funding. Congratulations to each of these organizations and kudos to the Artemis Fund Board of Trustees for their dedication to the grant review process this year!
