Last year, FLOC’s Neighborhood Tutoring Program received a first-time grant of $15,000 from The Volgenau Foundation. FLOC was excited to begin a partnership with The Volgenau Foundation and continue NTP’s growth with their support. This year we asked the Foundation to consider a request for a two-year grant and FLOC is thrilled to report that the Foundation has not only met our request, but has exceeded it by awarding a two-year, $50,000 grant for Neighborhood Tutoring!
The Volgenau Foundation is a grantmaking foundation supporting environment, education, and the arts, was established in 1994 in McLean, Virginia. FLOC is one of their selected grantees in their education category. The Volgenau Foundation supports nonprofits that engage organizations, families, and children in activities that enhance academic success, promote ethical understanding, and teach leadership skills.
FLOC is grateful for the Foundation’s commitment to our students and is truly honored to have received this grant. We look forward to expanding our partnership with The Volgenau Foundation in the coming years.
