David L. Holder Education Foundation Supports BCP

The David L. Holder Education Foundation has awarded BCP a grant of $10,000 to fund the Patterson Park Inter-School Soccer League for the Fall of 2011.

The league includes City Springs School, Collington Square School, Hampstead Hill Academy, Patterson Park Public Charter School, and Wolfe Street Academy and serves students in grades two through five. The program is supported this year by two $5,000 Ravens All Community Team Foundation grants.

The soccer league has been an incredible success. The grant will cover transportation, uniforms, equipment, coach stipends, and allow us to expand the league to include City Springs School.

Last year the foundation awarded BCP an $8,000 grant to support the Hampstead Hill Hornets Girls Soccer Team, Boys Basketball Program, and an outdoor leadership experience at Genesee Valley Outdoor Learning Center.

We would like to thank the David L. Holder Education Foundation for their generous ongoing support.

About the David L. Holder Education Foundation
The David L. Holder Education Foundation was established in 2008 upon David’s untimely passing due to a rare form of non-hodgkin’s lymphoma. Although a mere 35 years at the time of his death, David left behind a tremendous legacy of community service, a passion for nature, and a commitment to public education.

In order to honor David’s memory and keep his passions alive, the Foundation will both continue to contribute to organizations that David cared about, and build new, enduring relationships and programs in the communities that he supported.
