T3 recently received a $4,500 grant from the The Susan A. and Donald P. Babson Charitable Foundation. The focus of the foundation is the enrichment and empowerment of people of all ages around the world, so as to prevent exploitation, poverty, and injustice.
We requested funds in support of our annual Grants-to-Clubs Program. We requested $8000 to cover 16 schools. They chose to fund us at this amount, so expectations would be for us to support 9 schools. These funds will help cover costs of High School Outing Clubs ensuring that outings are accessible and affordable to ALL students regardless of prior experience or family income level. With this money, we will be able to award 16 grants next fall of approximately $500 each to schools. On average there are 25 students in an Outing Club thereby impacting the lives of over 400 teens.
