Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Grant Helps Establish a Math Library at Providence School

Boston, MA, March 10, 2014 – The Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp., a nonprofit, tax-exempt entity established by attorneys from the law firm of Brown Rudnick LLP, awarded a Community Grant to the Carl G. Lauro Elementary School in Providence, RI to help establish a math resource library for teachers and students at the school.

The math library will include materials to support math teachers such as helpful books, workbooks, and other resources for teachers to borrow and utilize in the classroom. In addition, the library will contain engaging math-themed books and materials for students to borrow and use as a supplement to their class lessons.
Commenting on the importance of the grant, Margaret Simms, Carl G. Lauro Elementary School math coach and grant applicant, said, “The goal of this grant is to help improve math proficiency among Lauro students, which is a key priority for the school. By establishing a math resource library our teachers and students will have additional resources focused on accelerating math learning.”


Al Wallis, Executive Director of the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp., said, “Many studies have shown that early childhood math proficiency is one of the strongest predictors of later school success. We are delighted to support this innovative math program at Carl G. Lauro Elementary School, which could help improve math education for students for years to come.”


Created to support front-line educators who often do not have a voice in funding decisions, the Community Grants subsidize small, concrete projects, which will improve inner-city education within Boston, Hartford, London, Providence, New York, or Washington DC within the coming year. The Foundation will generally consider grant applications monthly and award grants in an amount totaling not more than $2000 in any one month. The grant applications and an explanation of the program can be found at http://www.brownrudnickcenter.com/foundation/community-grant.
