Four Galveston organizations will received grants through a Moody Foundation that seeks to improve student achievement at all levels of education, the foundation recently announced.
The grants totaled $8.61 million. They were awarded to the Galveston Independent School District, the Moody Early Childhood Center, Odyssey Academy and SMART Family Literacy, foundation officials said late last week.
The Moody Foundation announced its new program, called the Generation Moody Educational Initiative, in October 2017.
In announcing the grants, the foundation officials called the awards an “investment in the next generation of Galvestonians.”
“Over time, the Generation Moody grants will provide support for the best practices and demonstrated outcomes that enable educational excellence,” said Frances Moody-Dahlberg, chairman and executive director of the Moody Foundation.
