The Overdeck Family Foundation has announced third-quarter grants totaling $13.5 million.

Six new grants and twenty-seven renewal grants were awarded in support of cost-effective programs with the potential to accelerate improvement in key academic and socioemotional outcomes for all children. Recipients include Future City, a four-month-long afterschool STEM program for grades six through eight, which was awarded $200,000 to increase the number of under-resourced students served, diversify revenue streams, and refine data tracking and reporting practices; Teaching Lab, which will receive $200,000 to pilot a virtual, adaptive, and competency-based delivery model; and Public Impact, which was awarded $700,000 in support of efforts to restructure Pre-K–12 schools to extend the reach of excellent teachers, principals, and their teams to more students, for more pay, within recurring school budgets.
