It Has Been a Great School Year So Far, Let's Keep It Going! 


We welcome your help!  Whether you can offer time, money, or ideas, you can help us make an important contribution to the lives of White Plains Public School students.

The school year is not yet halfway done, but our work on behalf of the White Plains Public Schools has already had a significant impact! In each of the past two school years, we have awarded more than $25,000 of grants, bring our cumulative grant amount above $360,000 - and this year we are working to build upon that momentum.  These are some of the grants we awarded during the current school year: 

  • Beyond Ballroom Dancing Program for all 4th or 5th grade students at all five elementary schools ​
  • Live Theater Tanglewood Marionettes production of Cinderella at Mamaroneck Avenue School 
  • Weather Lab and Critter Caravan programs for all Kindergarten students at Post Road School 
  • Scholarships for 9th Grade students to attend a performance of Scenes from Metamorphoses at SUNY Purchase
  • R.E.A.D. program at Rochambeau School 

We hope you will help us as we work to continue our success!
