Gifts to Help Schools Address BiasFriday 30, December 2016
By Debra Chasnoff, President/Senior Producer | blog, Let's Get Real, Respect For All Project
Thanks to a very generous gift from Irene and Regina Dick-Endrizzi, GroundSpark now has a fund designated to help defray expenses to send our education team out to support school communities to address bias-based bullying.
Middle school students strategize how to stop harassment of classmates whose English is limited after watching our film, Let’s Get Real.
The $5,000 donation, made in memory of Irene’s father, Marshall Dick, was given in response to the wave of attacks on students during and after the presidential campaign.
If you would like your end-of-year gift to be added to this fund, please make a note of that in the comments section when you send in your gift online.
Or write “education fund” on your check when you make it out to GroundSpark and mail to 4104 24th Street, Suite 2013, San Francisco, CA 94114.
The president-elect may be spending his time fueling animosity among different communities, but GroundSpark is redoubling our commitment to provide high quality films, curriculum guides, and professional training to ensure that every school is a place where Respect for All is valued.
