We are excited to announce that Durham’s Partnership for Children has been chosen as a finalist for a Triangle Community Foundation’s What Matters Innovation Award! The $5,000 award will be presented at the Foundation’s April 2nd What Matters Community Luncheon to organizations that are actively engaged in the theme of community innovation.
The Triangle Community Foundation has recognized the Partnership as an organization that innovates, collaborates, and advocates in the area of Youth Literacy. Three finalists were chosen from 44 applications. Our application focused on the multiple literacy development elements of our Transition to Kindergarten initiative. We are proud to be considered an innovative organization; tackling our community’s issues through thoughtful, effective, and long-lasting efforts.
