The Grainger Foundation has donated $10,000 to the Bowling Green State University Foundation in support of Falcon Millionaires @ BGSU, a program that focuses on financial literacy for eighth-graders.
"This grant will be used to help provide much needed supplies for the weeklong boot camp," said Jane Clinard, BGSU admissions program coordinator and director of Falcon Millionaires @ BGSU.
"We support the need for personal financial literacy at an early age and this camp for savvy kids fits perfectly for this mission. We are grateful to The Grainger Foundation for its generosity."
Clinard said the program currently meets the following Ohio Department of Education focus areas: Applying financial decision making; engaging in problem solving; analyzing budgets and investing; interacting with entrepreneurs, and participating in an etiquette luncheon.
Grainger has been a part of the Perrysburg and northwest Ohio business community for more than 34 years and is a broad line supplier of maintenance, repair and operating products.
"We are proud to recommend the programs offered by BGSU," said Robert Hoagland, branch manager of W.W. Grainger, Inc.'s Perrysburg location.
"We understand the need for offering financial education at an early age, which is also supported by the state of Ohio's leadership in Columbus," Hoagland added.
