Nominations Open for Georgia United Foundation’s 2024 School Crashers Program
DULUTH, GA - Is there a school in your community that could benefit from a sensory room that allows over-stimulated students, especially those with special needs, to regulate emotions and refocus? A revamped counseling and career center for students at an underserved school? Or a relaxing, modern space for teachers and staff to decompress and recharge?
Georgia United Foundation, in partnership with Georgia United Credit Union, is seeking nominations for School Crashers facility makeover grants for accredited K-12 schools in Georgia now through January 31, 2024.
For a decade, School Crashers has positively impacted 48,664 students and 5,820 faculty and staff while enhancing the learning environments at 70 schools with projects valued collectively at $2.1 million.
In 2024, School Crashers will continue to prioritize the holistic well-being and mental health of students and teachers by focusing on upgrades to on-campus interior spaces designed to fulfill those needs. Schools that are selected will receive grant funding, project management assistance and volunteers to help turn their makeover dreams into reality.
“We believe that strong schools create strong communities,” said Kim Wall, Georgia United’s director of community development. “If you know of an accredited elementary, middle or high school in Georgia that could use some TLC, now is the time to encourage them to apply for a School Crashers grant.”
Schools with the most compelling stories that illustrate the need for facility improvements may be selected as a School Crashers grant recipient in mid-March. Project requests that include structural, electrical or plumbing enhancements will not be considered.
