The AEF Board has committed to awarding $200,000 over the next three years to support the district’s ‘Safe & Supportive Schools‘ initiative to create a comprehensive behavioral health program. A $100,485 grant in the first year will fund:
Youth Mental Health First Aid training for 300 staff
Ongoing work on ‘Safe & Supportive Schools’ action plans for each school
Read the press release and the Advocate article about this strategic, multi-year partnership with the Arlington Public Schools. YOU, our donors, made this grant possible. Thank you!
Dr. John Lindgren, owner of Arlington Orthodontics, has always believed in the importance of education. This year, Dr. Lindgren donated $5,000 to AEF. No other business has given more to AEF in their first 3 years of business than Arlington Orthodontics. On behalf of Arlington Pubic Schools’ students and teachers – thank you Dr. Lindgren!
Since 2005, Dr. Carolyn Melita has invested in the teachers and students of the Arlington Public Schools. The owner of Belmont Orthodontics & Belmont Pediatric Dentistry has demonstrated that commitment by donating $5,000 to the Arlington Education Foundation for the second year in a row.
Looking for an orthodontist or dentist? Mention AEF and Dr. Melita will donate $100 to AEF (for new patients only).
Belmont Orthodontics & Belmont Pediatric Dentistry are the foundation’s single largest benefactors, having more than doubled the lifetime charitable donations of any other foundation business partner. Thank you Dr. Melita! More…
