$100,000 grant from the Aera Energy Fund helps to prepare local pre-schoolers for kindergarten, and Kern Community Foundation ranks among top 100 most active grantmakers among community foundations for third year in a row.
Aera Energy Fund Grant: Last week I had the privilege of joining Gaurdie Banister, President and CEO of Aera Energy LLC, to award a grant from the Aera Energy Fund at Kern Community Foundation to support "Ready to Start," a public-private partnership focused on helping local pre-schoolers prepare for kindergarten. The Bakersfield Californian ran a nice article about the program and the community's support, which you can read here.
