Children across the OKC metro will have new chances to participate in fun, engaging programs after 18 organizations received $247,000 in grants from the iFund Opportunities for Children program at the Oklahoma City Community Foundation.
This grant was designed to provide opportunities and enrichment for children ages 0-14 who otherwise would not have access to them. Eligible programs include: school readiness programs for preschoolers; housing, mental health or recreation programs for children in foster care; and services that provide recreation, social and cultural activities for underserved children in our community.
“This grant will be a huge boost to our Bilingual STEAM Kit Initiative,” said Smart Start Central Oklahoma Executive Director Sandy Cotton. “We’ll be able to supply fun science, technology, engineering, and math learning tools to children and their parents to help foster school readiness at home.”
