Chamber awards 2020 Business Grants to three local nonprofit education providers and opens applications to innovative Capital area educators for 2021

Each year, the Chamber awards grants to educators who have developed innovative teaching programs for use in Greater Concord schools through the Chamber’s Business and Education Task Force. Recipients demonstrate to the committee that their projects fit a specific educational need, are unique to their respective schools and are not supported by the school system’s annual budget. With COVID-19 disrupting this process for 2020, the Chamber awarded grants to three area nonprofits offering educational-based summer programs in the Greater Concord area:

  • ConcordTV- Your Community Channels — Each year local kids learn valuable communication and teamwork skills at ConcordTV’s youth video summer camp.
  • Kimball Jenkins School of Art — Every summer Kimball Jenkins welcomes hundreds of youth to its historic campus for an arts and history based day camp. With eight weeks of themed activities, participants will activate their creativity and imagination.
  • RB Productions — RB productions provides an innovative, entertaining and live community theatre experience with a focus on youth productions.

“Superior educational opportunities are critical to a healthy economy and quality of life, as well as an important cornerstone of the Chamber’s mission,” said Tim Sink, Chamber President. “We are pleased to provide grant funding to these outstanding cultural institutions in the Capital region.” Each of these
organizations will receive a $1,000 grant on behalf of the Business & Education task force to support and bolster these programs as kids yearning for interaction return to in-person experiences.
