The Kinder Morgan Foundation has made a grant of $5,000 to the Solano Community Foundation’s Education Plus! Grant program, the local foundation announced.
The Solano Community Foundation uses its Education Plus! Grant program in support of grade-level reading and math programs to address education as a root cause of poverty, according to a foundation press release.
The foundation funded nine programs in Solano County public schools during the past year. Education Plus! Grant program funds were used last month to support an early childhood literacy project for the Solano County Library, the release said. That grant enabled the library to acquire early literacy stations for each of its eight branches, according to the release.
