“The quality of the applications has risen markedly since we began this program in 1997. While the schools and districts receiving the grants represent a varied cross-section of the educational spectrum, all have shown an ability to unite their community and present a coherent vision of their goals along with a targeted approach for achieving them. These winning proposals are not necessarily elaborate; they are educationally sound. I’m confident these schools will have long term success and I’m eager to help them achieve it.” ~ President, Lea Melchior.

Through our YouthTouch Technology Integration Matching Grant & Pilot Program, Goldenrod supports schools to make the most of fewer resources, lessen educational achievement gaps, promote academic achievement, and advance a generation of children ready to tackle the 21st Century.
