Kualapu’u Public Charter School receives $20,000 
Grant Donation to help science instruction for students
Kualapu’u, Hawaii, June 25, 2021– Kualapu’u Public Charter School announced today it received a grant for $20,000 from Bayer Fund, which will be used to continue our science education program in Physical Science, Earth & Space Science, and Life Science. The grant will also support island-based field trips so students will learn these science concepts in action and in their own community.  Principal Lydia Trinidad reports, “Our students love field trips and we are excited we can continue our science instruction outside the walls of the classroom.  This year, especially after Covid-19 restrictions, we want to take our students outside!  This is our 4th year of receiving support from Bayer and we have all the curriculum to implement our science program.   We are appreciative of Bayer Molokai’s continued and long-term support to our students.”
“Throughout the years, the grants given through Bayer Fund have helped strengthen our communities across the United States,” said Al Mitchell, President of Bayer Fund. “We’re proud to be able to provide support to develop programs that help combat challenges such as food insecurity, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education and support services to patients and families managing an illness or disease.”
In 2020, Bayer Fund awarded more than $17 million to over 3,400 charitable and nonprofit organizations to help address essential needs in food and nutrition, STEM education and community development. Over the last five years, nonprofit organizations across the U.S. have received more than $80 million.
