TOLEDO, OHIO, December 2, 2015 – In partnership with Toledo Community Foundation, the Anderson Foundation recently awarded grants totaling $75,403 to five area nonprofit organizations.  Earlier this year, the Board of Trustees of the Anderson Foundation partnered with Toledo Community Foundation to release a new funding opportunity to area nonprofit organizations providing services that are aligned with the goals of Aspire.  Under this special request for proposals, grants were awarded to the following organizations: 

Library Legacy Foundation of the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library – $15,403 to support the Ready to Read “Ready, Set ... Kindergarten!” expansion project.
Mom’s House of Toledo, Inc. – $20,000 to support high quality early childhood education.

Aspire is a collective impact partnership that convenes community leaders around a common “cradle to career readiness” agenda.  It connects service providers, citizens, researchers, educators and business leaders around the common goal of helping children become healthy, caring, responsible adults.  One of Aspire’s five key outcomes is that all children in Lucas County enter kindergarten ready to succeed.   For more information on Aspire, visit www.aspiretoledo.org.
