The Partnership For Our Kids is excited to announce that we have received a $1,000 Restaurant Community Grant from the Darden Foundation! The Darden Restaurants, Inc. Foundation is the charitable arm of Darden Restaurants, Inc., and carries out its mission by focusing philanthropic efforts and resources on the following program areas: Access to Postsecondary Education, Preservation of Natural Resources and Good Neighbor Grants.

We are proud that our local Darden restaurant, The Olive Garden, identified us as a leader in our community and is supporting our work to help more Omaha students be successful from kindergarten to careers.

The Partnership For Our Kids will use the grant award to fund the College Exploration Project. This project is part of the Partnership’s college access curriculum and consists of college campus tours for 75 middle and high school students as well as their mentors. The project goal is to expose students to a college campus and educate them about the steps they will need to take to select the right college for them.
