El programa Gratitude Grants 2021

El programa anual Gratitude Grants de Chamberlin Education Foundation ofrece a los maestros de escuelas públicas de West Contra Costa de TK-12 becas individuales de $250 para expresar agradecimiento por su arduo trabajo y dedicación a sus estudiantes. Desde 2015, hemos otorgado más de 2,700 becas de gratitud que han ayudado a los maestros a diversificar las bibliotecas de las aulas, comprar materiales manipulables de matemáticas, agregar juegos de aprendizaje, actualizar los materiales de arte y más.
