The grants will be awarded once each school year, with a maximum grant amount of $500.

The Barrington 220 Educational Foundation received 33 Helping Hand Grant applications for the 2016-2017 school year. The decision-making process was a difficult one, with many worthwhile applicants vying for a limited amount of grant funds. The Educational Foundation was able to fully fund 19 of the Helping Hand Grant applications and partially fund 2 of them. We would like to thank all of the applicants for taking the time to submit an application and their dedication to the Barrington 220 Learning Community.
