CAAAE Garners a $200,000 Grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation!
In 2010, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation launched a $75 million America Healing Initiative. One of its main goals is to abolish structural racism. There were approximately 1,200 applicants, but only 119 were funded. The CAAAE submitted a grant in partnership with the East Side Union High School District. Although we were not funded, we cultivated a relationship with the Vice President who created the initiative. Fast forward. The CAAAE submitted a grant to seek general operating support so that we can move forward with the Consortium to Advance Equity in Education (CAEE) mentioned in this column a few months ago. We are excited about this support and will be reaching out to CAEE members in thenext few weeks to outline future plans!
