Opportunity to Support Local Students/Teachers :)


Contributed by Sara Jacobs

Many of us reflect on what we might be able to do to help out during these challenging times. Staff Council’s Employee Engagement Committee is pleased to announce a community outreach action in response to school closures during the Covid-19 pandemic.  Ithaca Public Education Initiative (IPEI) helped us identify a funding request they received that aligns with the criteria we outlined: A) Student/Education focused B) Supports remote/at home learning, and C) Art-related. 

We invite all members of the IC community to make a donation between now and June 15th, 2020 at: weblink.donorperfect.com/IPEIIC2020. See "Grants/Situational Grants" on form. Any amount ($5 or whatever you are able to give) is truly appreciated. A goal of $500 funds an entire Situational Grant, several of which have been tied to art supplies.

IPEI is doing its best to maintain its current grant availability through the end of May, but any/all gifts will be used to support grant requests. 

Thank you in advance for your generosity and support!  A small act of kindness goes a long way.
