Fox & Weeks presents York Children’s Foundation grant to Chatham Academy

Fox & Weeks presents York Children’s Foundation grant to Chatham Academy at Royce Learning Center SAVANNAH – Chatham Academy at Royce Learning Center in Savannah was selected earlier this year to receive a $500 grant from the York Children’s Foundation through Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors. The York Children’s Foundation is affiliated with the Mathews International Corporation casket division, and to date the organization has contributed more than $2.2 million to mostly community-based children’s charities throughout the country via quarterly grants. Each time a family purchases a casket at Fox & Weeks, a portion of the cost is donated to the York Children’s Foundation in the name of the deceased and the accumulated funds are distributed quarterly to area non-profits chosen through an application process. Fox & Weeks is the only funeral home in the area actively participating in the York Children’s Foundation program and has now distributed more than $2000 to local non-profits serving children’s needs since 2012. Royce Learning Center has received two York Children’s Foundation grant awards through Fox & Weeks, and other recipients include Park Place Outreach and Savannah/Chatham Court Appointed Special Advocates. Royce Learning Center is the only comprehensive educational facility specializing in learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders and other barriers to learning in the Savannah-Chatham County community. Chatham Academy’s mission is to create an educational environment for students and families with learning differences by going above and beyond the normal standards of care and education to provide exceptional outcomes. “Royce Learning Center has been an invaluable resource for our community for more than four decades, and we feel privileged to be able to contribute to a facility that has helped so many students and families,” said Fox & Weeks Vice President Scott E. Weeks. “Being able to offer support to organizations like Royce is what the York Children’s Foundation is all about, and it’s why we believe strongly in participating in this grant program.” The purpose of the York Children’s Foundation is to award grants to non-profit organizations dedicated to supporting children, and any organization in the Coastal Empire with the primary purpose of providing for children’s needs is eligible to apply for a York Children’s Foundation grant. To qualify for a York Children’s Foundation grant through Fox & Weeks, an application must be submitted and an organization’s activities must be primarily directed towards the welfare and benefit of children.
