Deadlines for Peabody foundation approach
Peabody Community Foundation has opened its grant cycle for teachers and student groups.
It will offer eight $250 grants to Peabody-Burns staff and student groups. The deadline for grant applications is Oct. 11. The foundation will announce awards Nov. 28.
Grants awarded last year paid for replacement of library books, knife kits for family consumer science classes, and supplies for project-based learning activities.
More information and an application are available at centralkansascf.org under an “apply” tab.

Contributions will be matched dollar for dollar through Oct. 9.
