Ideal Community Issues Grants to Support Literacy and Academic Programs
The Intrepid Ideal Community Fund committee recently issued its first two grants of 2022 to The Boys and Girls Club of North Alabama for $7,600 and the Huntsville Inner City Learning Center for $5,000. Funds will be used to support literacy and academic success programs for these organizations.
The Boys and Girls Club of North Alabama has 15 locations across Madison, Morgan, Limestone, and Jackson counties, with plans to open another location in North Huntsville within the next year.
“I can’t tell you the difference that companies like yours make for the kids that we serve,” said Suzanne Rainey Thompson, Vice President of BGCNA.
The organization’s education programs are robust and include an early literacy program to prepare children for kindergarten, a STEM program complete with a lab at each location, Career Launch for teens, diplomas2Degrees, Money Matters, and more. This year, 120 seniors from the Boys and Girls Club of North Alabama will graduate in May. Read more about the Boys and Girls Club of North Alabama here.
