S. Mark Taper Foundation Awards $50,000 Grant to The Frostig Center

The Frostig Center is pleased to announce that the S. Mark Taper Foundation awarded a $50,000 grant to Frostig to support its work to improve the lives of children and youth who have learning differences.

The Frostig Center operates a school that enrolls 125 students in grades 1-12 who have learning differences, such as dyslexia, ADHD and high functioning autism. It also trains hundreds of public, private and parochial school teachers to better serve the struggling learner.

“The generous grant from the S. Mark Taper Foundation will help us help the children and teen-agers who battle every day to overcome their learning challenges,” said Frostig Executive Director Dean Conklin. “I am grateful and proud that the foundation has chosen to partner with The Frostig Center.”

The S. Mark Taper Foundation, founded in 1989, is a private family foundation dedicated to enhancing the quality of people’s lives by supporting nonprofit organizations and their work in our communities.

The Frostig Center was founded in 1951 by Dr. Marianne Frostig, a pioneer in the study, diagnosis and treatment of learning disabilities. Frostig continues to honor her vision of inclusiveness by providing services that are accessible to children and families of all backgrounds and incomes.
