9 Newark programs receive Dodge grants
Thursday, April 20, 2006
Students in public schools throughout the state will benefit from $4.3 million in grants awarded by the trustees of the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation to 76 educational organizations.

All of the grants have been made to organizations, and for programs, that "focus on providing high-quality, often life-changing educational experiences for New Jersey students and teachers," according to the Dodge Foundation.

Dodge grants are also supporting greater public school choice for parents and their children through the creation of small learning communities, and the expansion of New Jersey's fledgling charter schools.

"These grants not only provide immediate access to educational excellence for many children," Education Program Director Ross Danis said, "they also support people, programs, and policies that will, over time, assist the public sector in meeting the diverse educational needs of all children in the Garden State."

The 2006 Dodge Foundation grant recipients include:


Abbott Leadership Institute, in Newark, $50,000


Center for Architecture and Building Science Research, in Newark, $40,000


Communities in Schools New Jersey, in Newark, $150,000
