Monument Chemical Seeks Grant Ideas Focused on Youth Education in Brandenburg
Annual Monument Community Partnership Initiative grant will award $10,000 to a non-profit organization for a new program that supports the education of youth in the Brandenburg community.
Monument Chemical, Brandenburg, invites non-profit organizations to submit proposals for the company’s annual $10,000 Community Partnership Initiative (CPI) grant. The grant will be awarded to a non-profit organization in support of a new program that addresses a demonstrated need within the grant’s area of focus, which is “Education of Youth.” Monument’s goal with this grant is to enhance educational programs for the youth in the Brandenburg community when school is not in session. Priority consideration will be given to specific programs or projects that focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) learning.
Grant application information has been sent to local non-profits, and the deadline to apply for the 2022 grant is May 31, 2022. Interested applicants are encouraged to reach out to Tonya Klinglesmith, HR Manager, at email@example.com with questions about how to apply.
The winning grant will be chosen by the Monument Brandenburg Community Advisory Council (MBCAC), a Monument-sponsored committee that includes members of the Monument Brandenburg team, individuals who live, work or attend school in Brandenburg and the surrounding communities, and representatives of organizations and government entities serving those communities. The MBCAC meets quarterly to engage in candid dialogue to develop a shared understanding of the interdependency of industry and community. Previous Monument CPI grant winners include: the Meade County Museum & Arts Council; the Meade County 4-H Youth Development; the Meade County School District; and the Meade County College and Career Center.
In 2021, Monument Chemical, Brandenburg, split the award of the $10,000 CPI grant between the Meade County 4-H Youth Development “Full STEAM Ahead” program for local youth and the Meade County College and Career Center “Girls Who Code” Program.
“STEAM programs and activities that show real-world implications of knowledge in these critical areas can reinforce in-school learning and illustrate how STEAM benefits our society and our world as a whole,” said Tonya Klinglesmith, HR Manager. “Monument is proud to play a role in building an early love of STEAM, as well as in promoting diversity and inclusion in STEAM education. We’re eager to learn more about the creative educational programming that will continue to build the next generation of innovators – and to select another fantastic Monument CPI winner.”
