Alliance Group Receives Stark Community Foundation’s 2009 Power of Partnership Award
September 30, 2009
The Alliance Partnership for The Twenty-First Century recently received Stark Community Foundation's 2009 Power of Partnership Award.
Members of the Alliance Partnership include Mount Union College, Alliance City Schools, Alliance Neighborhood Center, Alliance YMCA and Alliance YWCA.
The Alliance Partnership received an $850,000 grant from The Ohio Department of Education to support afterschool programs in two locations – Alliance Neighborhood Center and Alliance Middle School – over the next five years.
The grant came after The Twenty-First Century Partnership in Canton met with the Alliance Partnership to share and discuss their experience with obtaining their Ohio Department of Education grant for an afterschool program. After a few more contacts and discussions about how to write the grant and agree to a true partnership-the grant was written. The success story began when the announcement came in June that the Alliance Partnership received the funding.
