The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation is accepting proposals for their Good Neighbor Grant program.
The Good Neighbor Grants program was established in 2012 to identify and strengthen ties with youth-serving nonprofit organizations in the Northern Virginia, metropolitan Washington, D.C., and Maryland areas that are helping students with significant financial need reach their full potential through education.
The Cooke Foundation’s grant can support the establishment of new programs or the enhancement of existing initiatives that support high potential low-income students. We are most interested in programs that promote engagement, enrichment, creativity, talent development, and intellectual curiosity.
Examples of eligible programs include after-school academic and summer enrichment opportunities, college access advising programs, arts, service learning, and STEM programs, innovative approaches that bridge education and technology, and internship programs. Funds may also be used for the development of education-related products that will directly benefit students: handbooks, training guides, and other written and digital media.
The grant is a one time opportunity intended for a specific project or program based costs.
