SAIL. A grant of $135,000 to Summer Adventures in Learning (SAIL), a collaborative that promotes strong academics in summer programs mix academics and activities. For 2018, the 13 SAIL funders provided $882,200 to 46 host providers who served approximately 2,500 children in 12 counties.

In response to COVID-19, we are taking action to ensure that needs are met across the greater Birmingham community. We are continuing our quarterly grantmaking; however, we have extended the application deadline to June 1 in order to give our nonprofit organizations some extra time to respond to the impact of COVID-19.
