Learning Tree awarded grant from San Antonio Area Foundation

January 10, 2012

The Northside ISD Learning Tree after-school program, in partnership with the Northside Education Foundation, was awarded a $20,000 grant from the May S. Duncan Charitable Fund of the San Antonio Area Foundation.

The grant will focus on improving high school completion by funding technology enrichment courses for students enrolled in the after-school and summer programs at Jones, Rayburn, and Ross middle schools.

The Learning Tree program offers opportunities for children to access academic enrichment, social, and recreational experiences in an after-school environment that is safe and supervised.

For more than 47 years, the San Antonio Area Foundation has connected donors with charitable causes that matter most to them, and as a result has distributed more than $200 million in grants and scholarships.
