Up to $1,000 in Funding Available from Daniel J. Briggs Fund for Integrity
WATERTOWN — Local school districts pursuing grant funding to support bullying prevention and character education programs are encouraged to apply to the Daniel J. Briggs Fund for Integrity of the Northern New York Community Foundation.
The charitable fund was established in 2015 at the Community Foundation to provide financial resources dedicated to key educational programs that raise awareness of bullying in local schools and the community, as well as support for professional development programs to educate school administrators, teachers, faculty and staff. The fund is also designed to support projects and initiatives that promote leadership development, student responsibility, respect and trust for the community. Four grants have been awarded in the last two years to school-based programs designed to increase student experiences in music, create campus-wide awareness campaigns, and build overall student confidence and engagement.
