The Charitable Projects Committee administers the Charitable Projects Fund for Shaker Lakes Garden Club. An endowment and generous annual contributions from members and friends enable SLGC to make gifts to organizations that support our mission to educate and promote activities related to environmental protection, conservation, horticulture, and gardening. Applications from the community, with endorsement by a Club member, are due on February 1 each year. The Committee weighs the merits, as well as our capacity to fulfill requests, and awards funds. In this way, we promote the organization’s missions and goals on local and national levels and enable SLGC to make a positive impact on the world.
Stonebrook Montessori Receives Major Grant in 2018-2019
The SLGC membership voted to award its 2019 major grant to Stonebrook Montessori School, a tuition-free public charter Montessori school within the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, located on Wade Park Boulevard in the Glenville neighborhood.
This project, created in partnership with the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes, establishes an Educator-in-Residence program at Stonebrook for students in Kindergarten through Grade 6. NCSL educators will provide hands-on science lessons and environmental education enrichment experiences using the Cleveland Cultural Gardens, Doan Brook, and the Nature Center in a differentiated curriculum by grade/age.
Grant funds supported the Educator-in-Residence salary, provided program supplies and classroom science materials, and funded field trip transportation.
