"Houston -- no, Somerville, We've got a Problem!!"

Hard to believe, but the news of our teacher grants has really gotten out.
The deadline has passed, the Somerville Math Fund board meets next week to review the applications.

You know from reading past blog posts, that we have sponsored great ideas to enrich, support and encourage all levels of math learners in the the classrooms of Somerville K-12.

Everything the Somerville Math Fund does is a result of our wonderful donors and volunteers -- we have no employees.

So what is the problem?
We have so many more grant applications than ever before, we have a 35% increase in deserving applications!!
So, this "busts the budget"!!

How can you help?
Can you sponsor a grant?
Each teacher grant is at most $500.
An extra donation, sponsoring a grant, would make a difference on the help we can give in the classrooms of Somerville.
I need to know ASAP, because the Somerville Math Fund board meets next week to make the decisions on who we can fund.

Email me at math fund@gmail.com and let me know how you can help.
Then put a check in the mail [Somerville Math Fund, 244 Summer St, Somerville MA 02143].
If you have questions and would like to hear more details about the grants, email me and we'll set up a time to talk.

I appreciate all the extra support you can give.
