On September 17th a $25,000 grant from the Monmouth County Community Foundation was presented to DonorsChoose.org at an event held at the Midtown Community Elementary School in Neptune, NJ, which included the Superintendent of Neptune Schools, Mr. David Mooij. The Monmouth County Community Foundation “Double Your Impact” campaign will be used to half fund teacher-submitted proposals from Monmouth County, New Jersey public schools.
Besides receiving a “big check,” DonorsChoose.org staff had the opportunity to meet students from a local music teacher’s band program. Mr. Palmer’s music program in Neptune Public Schools has been predominantly funded by DonorsChoose.org projects requesting instruments and band equipment (20 funded projects to be exact!). After talking with his school principal about the need to make band instruments readily available to students who could not afford to buy them, Mr. Palmer found DonorsChoose.org as the solution to expanding the music program!
We are inspired by Mr. Palmer’s love of music and his enthusiasm for his students. You can show your support by checking out Monmouth County projects today!
