Princeton Area Community Foundation Awards $275K Grant

Friday, October 8, 2021

The Princeton Area Community Foundation has awarded a $275,000 grant to fund a program to teach school staff throughout Mercer County how to identify students exposed to stressful or traumatic experiences and how to engage all students in a way that promotes healing from the mental health effects of the pandemic.

The Foundation for Educational Administration’s Healing Centered Engagement initiative will be funded with a $137,500 grant from the Community Foundation’s COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Fund and an additional $137,500 from a Community Foundation fund-holder who wishes to remain anonymous.

“We want to thank the generous donors whose support made it possible for the Community Foundation to create the COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Fund, as well as the anonymous fundholder, who is providing significant funding for this much-needed program that will help so many of our schoolchildren,” said Sonia Delgado, Community Foundation trustee and chair of the Committee on Impact.
