Grants for Education

Grants for education are awarded by a board appointed committee of volunteers called The Education Grants Team.  This Team is intensely focused on improving education outcomes for Cumberland County students and makes grants to Elementary Schools in Cumberland County and other local nonprofits to improve reading skills for grades K-3 and increase graduation rates for at risk youth.
