Cone Health Foundation Grant
Thanks to Cone Health Foundation , schools in GCS have an opportunity to apply for a grant that can be used toward planning health-related educational opportunities for parents and families.
GCS is offering 10 grants worth $1,000 each. The money can be used to fund workshops or a series of workshops that focus on health and wellbeing and target low-income families. Workshops targeting “winnable” battles identified recently by the Centers for Disease Control— nutrition, physical activity and obesity; teen pregnancy; HIV; motor vehicle injuries and tobacco use—are preferred. Even though health should be the focus, workshops can include other topics as well.
The workshops will be included in Guilford Parent Academy’s calendar of events for the 2012-13 school year.
The deadline to apply is July 19, 2012. For the application, click on the link below.
