Kenwood, Calif. (Nov. 27, 2018) – Landmark Vineyards today is celebrating Giving Tuesday, a national day of giving, by awarding $30,000 in grants to teachers at schools in the Sonoma and Russian River Valleys through the Landmark School Grants program. These grants will fund supplies including watercolor paints, solar battery kits and yoga mats, as well as support field trips to local sites such as the California Indian Museum and the historic sailing ship Balclutha.
The Landmark School Grants program provides $30,000 to local schools each fall through a partnership with DonorsChoose.org, which allows teachers to post requests online for learning supplies or field trip funds that are then crowdfunded by friends, local businesses and the public.
To date, Landmark has funded teachers’ projects benefitting 2,400 students at 16 schools. Landmark has $12,000 remaining in available funding and encourages teachers to visit its website to learn how to apply: www.landmarkwinegrants.com.
“Giving Tuesday is the perfect time to give back to our communities, and we’re proud to make a difference by supporting our local schools,” said Matt Steel, General Manager of Landmark. “Last year, we were able to help many teachers and students replace supplies lost in the fires. This year, we’ve been delighted to support projects that offer students exciting new learning experiences both in and out of the classroom.”
Landmark School Grants is the second grants program initiated by Landmark Vineyards, which also offers the Landmark Community Grants program to support local nonprofit organizations. To learn more about Landmark’s grant programs visit www.landmarkwinegrants.com.
