LATEST NEWS

FEATURED GRANTS

FOOD PANTRY

2020 marks the fourteenth year that Rockland Community Foundation has partnered with Inserra (Shoprite) Supermarkets to help provide much needed assistance to area food pantries. Inserra’s generous dollar-for-dollar match allows us to make a gift of $500.00 in Shoprite Gift Cards to up to fourteen Rockland County Food Pantries. Cards will be presented to the awarded agencies throughout the month of October.

INNOVATIVE TEACHING GRANT

Teaching Grant Program. Funded through a grant from The Aufgang Family Charitable Trust, this program recognizes teachers engaged in exciting and innovative methods of instruction and provides funds to enable teachers to carry out instructional activities in Rockland County K-12 schools. This year’s grant criteria and award levels have changed in light of COVID-19 and the challenges facing educators. Focus and favor will be given to grant applications that align with STEAM (Science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) and those that seek to use virtual based technologies that offer flexibility in either traditional classrooms or video platforms.
