HDR Foundation Announces 37 More 2019 Grant Recipients

OMAHA, NE — The HDR Foundation announces 37 grants awarded to nonprofit organizations across the country totaling $204,824. These are part of the 2019 small grant and young professionals action grant cycles. The organizations will use the funds for a variety of educational, recreational and community benefit programs.

Awardees for the second small grant cycles of 2019 include:

Reach Out and Read - Early Learning Partnership of York County | Rock Hill, South Carolina

HDR Foundation’s $7,700 grant will provide funds for a one-time purchase of books for children and parents. The reading program would become part of the county’s “well-children” visit. These books will be distributed as part of the 13 established well-child visits before the child in the Rock Hill area enters kindergarten.

Orange County Ocean Restoration Project – Get Inspired! | Garden Grove, California

HDR Foundation’s $12,850 grant will purchase tanks, filters, pipes, etc. to create a nursery for growing kelp, abalone and white seabass. This program teaches students valuable job skills for careers in aquaculture, teaches hands-on STEM education and replenishes a popular recreational sport fish in local waters.

Children and Family Services Center | Huntersville, North Carolina

HDR Foundation’s $15,000 grant will purchase equipment and supplies to install a new playground in Huntersville. HDR's grant will fund the major play climb and slide structure and the ‘core strength piece’ hanging bars.

Denver Urban Gardens | Denver, Colorado

HDR Foundation’s $15,000 grant will purchase materials and supplies to construct a sustainable garden shed at the West Colfax Urban Community Garden. The building will have solar shingles/panels, a rainwater catchment system on the roof, a solar storage battery to provide security lighting and an outlet system. Harvested rainwater will irrigate the garden. Educational signage on the shed will provide information on the benefits of solar power and rainwater harvesting and will be viewed by gardeners along with park visitors.

Bayou Vermillion Preservation Association | Lafayette, Louisiana

HDR Foundation’s $13,993 grant will purchase saplings, shrubs, mulch and signage for community-led plantings, educational workshops and related publications. The grant would address watershed improvements and flood protection two ways: community volunteers would do plantings on targeted public lands, and then would also get plant stock for their own lands in a flood hazard area.

Blue River Watershed | Kansas City, Missouri

HDR Foundation’s $12,050 grant will purchase science kits for the Watershed to use in 16 T.R.U.E. BlueSM classes and seven Macros classes for schools throughout the Greater Kansas City Metropolitan Area. Supplies include HACH kits, chemicals and gloves for T.R.U.E. BlueSM, and nets, macros kits and gloves for Macros programming.

Putnam County Educational Service Center | Ottawa, Ohio

HDR Foundation's $8,300 grant will purchase tools, materials and equipment to support the continuation of the Putnam County Science Fair. With this support to the science fair, the STEM component will now be included for every school district served.

HDR's young professionals were also offered the opportunity to apply for action grants in support of the organizations they are passionate about in their communities. Thirty organizations received grants supporting:

• Greenways/parks/street scape plantings
