LANL FOUNDATION News:
The LANL Foundation is accepting applications for $2,500 education and community outreach grants. The deadline for submission in the second yearly grantmaking cycle is Aug. 15.
Two types of grants are offered to nonprofit organizations, schools or education programs. Education Outreach Grants directly support public school children in grades K–12. Community Outreach Grants meet the Foundation’s mission and vision of innovative programming, collaboration and advocacy for lifelong learning but need not be tied directly to K–12 public education. Early childhood and adult learning programs and some community events fall within this category of community funding.
Public school districts, nonprofit New Mexico educational institutions, IRS-qualified 501(c)(3) organizations, government agencies, and Pueblo/Tribal communities may be eligible to receive grants and must serve one or more of the seven Northern New Mexico counties of Los Alamos, Mora, Rio Arriba, San Miguel, Sandoval, Santa Fe or Taos.
Grantees have one full year to spend the money and submit a final report to the LANL Foundation.
Application form, instructions and additional information may be found at www.lanlfoundation.org/grants, in addition to the list of 51 grant recipients that received $127,700 in funding during the half of the year.
For more information, contact LANL Foundation grants coordinator Susanne Miller at 505.753.8890, ext 118 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since 1997, the Los Alamos National Laboratory Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, has worked to inspire excellence in education and learning in Northern New Mexico through innovative programming, collaboration and advocacy. By investing in human potential, the Foundation’s vision is that all New Mexicans have the skills and confidence they need to be self-sufficient, lifelong learners who are engaged in their communities. Programs in early childhood, K–12 education with support of teacher professional development and STEM inquiry, scholarships and education and community grants serve Northern New Mexico communities primarily in Los Alamos, Mora, Rio Arriba, San Miguel, Sandoval, Santa Fe and Taos counties.
