In particular, The Journal recognized the $150,000 in grants disbursed in 2015 by Fox & Roach Charities’ Board of Trustees for technology advancement in children’s education. Grants of $50,000 were made to each of three area educational organizations: The Gesu School in North Philadelphia, Respond, Inc. in Camden, NJ and West End Neighborhood House and Hilltop Lutheran Neighborhood Center in Wilmington, DE. Each $50,000 grant was used to purchase, upgrade and expand educational technology and thereby transform the learning environment for children that would not otherwise have access to these tools.
