NY Sun Works Awarded Prestigious Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Grant
NY Sun Works is honored to announce we’ve been awarded our first grant from the renowned Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. The Sloan Foundation is a not-for-profit, mission-driven grantmaking institution dedicated to improving the welfare of all through the advancement of scientific knowledge.
“STEM education is a cornerstone of our mission and particularly important in our New York City grantmaking,” says Chris Richardson, Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Communications Officer. “We are thrilled to support New York Sun Works and excited to see how their innovative science labs continue to provide transformative educational experiences to students across the five boroughs.”
This $25,000 grant, through the Foundation’s New York City program, plants the seed for a brighter future for three NYC schools by funding the implementation of our hands-on sustainability science program, as well as for a promising future for NY Sun Works as we continue to welcome new partners to our mission of improving science-based education in NYC.
