Hartford Foundation for Public Giving Awards Generous Grants for Goodwin College Math Lab

Goodwin College is pleased to announce that the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving has approved two grants for the Math Lab, located in Room 219 at One Riverside Drive.

The Math Lab offers tutoring support as well as online learning modules, allowing students to master concepts at their own pace. The Lab is staffed with peer and professional tutors on a walk-in and appointment basis.  Students are encouraged to ask questions and seek assistance in this supportive, accommodating environment.

The grants are from the Samuel Roskin Trust and The Right Track Fund at the Hartford Foundation.

These generous grants will allow Goodwin to purchase over 100 graphing calculators. They will be lent out to students, who will return the calculators at the end of the semester to be used by the next student. This initiative will be especially helpful to those who cannot afford to purchase a calculator.

“These donations will have a tremendous effect not only on the Math Lab, but on Goodwin as a whole. We are always seeking ways to improve the College and help students succeed, so we truly appreciate the generosity of the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving,” said Marion Leonard, Director of Grants and Planned Giving.

Goodwin thanks the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, the Right Track, and the Samuel Roskin Fund for these generous grants and looks forward to enhancing the Math Lab and assisting our students.

The Hartford Foundation for Public Giving is the community foundation for the 29-town Greater Hartford region, dedicated to improving the quality of life for area residents. It receives gifts from thousands of generous individuals, families, and organizations and awards grants to a broad range of area nonprofit organizations.
