Applications Being Accepted for Teacher and Summertime Program Grants

CINCINNATI, OH - February 13, 2012 - The Greater Cincinnati Foundation (GCF) is now accepting applications for its two Grants for Kids programs, Learning Links and Summertime Kids, which benefit thousands of children each year through grants of up to $1,000 to schools and nonprofit organizations for special projects.

Grants for Kids enable educators and nonprofit organizations to provide creative learning experiences for children, and provide support for schools with limited project budgets. In 2011, Grants for Kids enriched the lives of over 40,000 children through a quarter of a million dollars in grants.

Learning Links Education Grants
Learning Links was created to provide small grants to teachers for special projects that have a positive impact on any segment of the school. Educators from schools in Butler, Clermont, Hamilton and Warren counties in Ohio; Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties in Kentucky; and Dearborn County, Indiana may apply for Learning Links grants now for the 2012-2013 school year. Grants will be announced in August and awarded in September 2012.

Summertime Kids Grants
The Summertime Kids program seeks to provide school-age youth with constructive, safe, fun, and enriching summer activities. Nonprofit organizations in all eight counties may now apply for Summertime Kids grants for projects that will take place during summer 2012. Grants will be awarded in May 2012.

Grants for Kids programs are made possible through the generous support of GCF’s donors and continued support from the Charles H. Dater Foundation.
