Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation announced today that April 30 is the deadline for The Kinderhook Central School District Education Foundation Arts and Humanities Fund. The purpose of the Arts and Humanities fund is to enhance and enrich the educational experience of students and teachers in the Kinderhook (Ichabod Crane), NY Central School District through access to programs in the arts and humanities that emphasize excellence, innovation and creativity. Students, teachers, administrators, staff, parents and community members of the Ichabod Crane School District are invited to apply for grants for the 2010-2011 school year. A committee of school personnel and community members will review applications based on: excellence of the project, impact on the school community and ability of the applicant to carry out the project. Applications are available at the Superintendent’s office and online at www.berkshiretaconic.org/grantseekers. Grant awards will range from $100 to $2,500. Possible projects include, but are not limited to: independent study, new programs, extracurricular activities, individual creative projects (in or outside the classroom), visiting speakers, artists-in-residence, professional development for teachers, library resources and class field trips. Preference will be given to activities that take place within the school community. Kinderhook Central School District Education Foundation Arts and Humanities Fund was established in 2008 with a gift to the endowment from an anonymous donor in the Germantown area. Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation builds stronger communities and improves the quality of life for all residents of Berkshire County, MA; Columbia County and northeast Dutchess County, NY; and northwest Litchfield County, CT. Thanks to its generous donors, in 2009 Berkshire Taconic distributed nearly $7 million in scholarships and grants for programs in the arts and education, health and human services, and environmental protection. Berkshire Taconic is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization.
