Tanger Outlets in Jeffersonville has announced two individual schools in Fayette County and one individual school in Franklin County as this year’s recipients of a TangerKIDS Grant.
In keeping with Tanger Outlets’ mission to support the future of our children, the TangerKIDS Grants program is designed to award grant money to local schools in the communities where Tanger Outlet Centers are located. Grants awarded this month will benefit schools for the 2016-2017 school year.
This year’s recipients in Fayette County are: Miami Trace Middle School and Miami Trace Elementary School.
This year’s recipient in Franklin County is: Pleasant View Middle School.
For every coupon book sold, Tanger has earmarked one dollar for the TangerKIDS Grants program.
Funding for TangerKIDS Grants ranges from $3,000 to $7,500 per center and may be split between multiple grant requests.
“A substantial part of our mission at Tanger Outlets is to contribute positively to the communities in which we operate,” said Steven B. Tanger, president and chief executive officer of Tanger Outlets. “A high quality education is instrumental to enhancing communities and we are proud to once again give back to these remarkable schools in Fayette and Franklin counties as part of our efforts to support students and educators across the country.”
The TangerKIDS Grants program is designed to assist schools in Tanger Outlets’ primary markets by providing grants for special projects, needed programs or equipment. Grants can also support groups within schools of all grade levels from kindergarten to grade 12. These grants are offered to multiple schools at each of Tanger’s 42 centers in the United States.
Since the company’s inception, Tanger has dedicated efforts to assist students in local communities from pre-school through high school by raising money that is used to purchase books and supplies, computers and new technology, athletic and playground equipment, and to fund reading programs and educational field trips in addition to many other important educational projects.
To date, Tanger Outlets has raised and donated in excess of $540,000 to help children and schools succeed.
