Awarded: The Samuel Huntington Public Service Award, sponsored by National Grid.
Samuel Huntington was President and Chief Executive Officer of the New England Electric System which later merged with National Grid. He was deeply interested in public service. Following his graduation from college and before attending law school, Mr. Huntington taught in Nigeria. The Samuel Huntington Public Service Award was established by his friends to allow other students to realize similar experiences and to provide public service.
Kathryn McQuade Foundation
The Foundation was established in December 2013 by Kathryn B. McQuade, after retiring from 33 years of working in the business community. We will support organizations that help us achieve our goal of Striving to make sustainable improvements in women and children’s rights education and welfare.
Project for Peace
Projects for Peace is an initiative for all undergraduate students currently enrolled at one of our participating Davis United World College Scholars Program partner schools (and a few other institutions) to design grassroots projects for the summer of 2018—anywhere in the world—which promote peace and address the root causes of conflict among parties. Projects will be selected for funding at $10,000 each.
World Literacy foundation
1 out of 5 people can’t read or write- we are here to change that.
The World Literacy Foundation is a global not-for-profit organisation working to lift young people out of poverty through the power of literacy. We believe that every child should be able to read and write so they can enjoy lifelong learning and empowerment. We are committed to building strong partnerships, providing assistance to grassroots literacy organisations and maximizing our impact through innovative solutions that bring quality education materials to classrooms across the world.
All People Be Happy Foundation
Starting early in 2018, using a $10,000 grant from the AllPeopleBeHappy foundation, Sunflower is initiating the Sunflower Fellows program, which gives low-performing, vulnerable girls in the informal schools in Kibera, Kenya literacy and leadership training to build their academic skills, self-confidence, and ensure that they complete primary and secondary school.
Kidogo is a social enterprise that provides high-quality, affordable Early Childhood Care & Education to low-income families living in East Africa. We seek to unlock the potential of young children and transform the trajectory of their family’s lives.
girls rights project
The Girls Rights Project is dedicated to ensuring that girls throughout the world have a right to life, health, freedom and education. Through their grantmaking, GRP focuses on ending trafficking, violence and other forms of mistreatment and discrimination against girls. The Girls Rights Project funds programs that advance the rights of girls, conducts research on meaningful paths to social change and acts as a clearinghouse to disseminate information on creating a world where girls live their lives in freedom and dignity.
The Hansen Family Foundation
We are founded on the ideal of giving back generously to a world, a nation and a culture that has enabled the Hansen family to prosper. The Foundation supports a wide range of non-political charitable causes. Our preference, however, is to furnish “start-up” support to smaller non-profit organizations that have, or will have, a significant impact now and into the future.
