The Jewish Children’s Museum in New York received a $10,000 grant for afterschool education.
The Nissan Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Japanese automotive company, awarded the grant to the Brooklyn-based museum in recognition of its multicultural educational program.
The money will support “Creative Kids,” an afterschool program that exposes children of all backgrounds to Jewish culture and traditions. Last year, 500 children aged 9 to 15 enjoyed arts and crafts, dance, nutrition, computers and homework tutoring through the program.
Established in 1992, the Nissan Foundation provides grants to approximately 10 organizations each year, with a preference for educational programs that foster awareness among cultures.
