Thunderbirds Charities has granted $30,000 to A Stepping Stone Foundation to help provide high quality early childhood education for disadvantaged children in the Phoenix area. “We transform lives through two generation education,” says Executive Director, Cynthia Gattorna of A Stepping Stone Foundation. “This funding will help provide quality preschool for 40 local children and parent support for their families for one year. While children are learning how to be successful in kindergarten, their parents are learning how to be their child’s first best teacher and parents work on their own education classes, too. Together we can break illiteracy-driven cycles of poverty in our community.”
This grant is part of the Fall 2021 cycle. View a list of all Recent Grantees.
