The Andrew Jergens Foundation Awards Grant To iSPACE To Fund New “Making Mathletes” Program

CINCINNATI, OHIO –  May 31, 2019 – iSPACE, the premier provider of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) learning in the Greater Cincinnati Region, has been awarded a $15,000 grant by The Andrew Jergens Foundation to support iSPACE’s “Making Mathletes”  math and engineering program for second graders.

The Andrew Jergens Foundation was established in 1962 in Cincinnati by Andrew N. Jergens (1881-1967).  The Andrew Jergens Foundation, a private foundation client of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation, has reached a generous milestone – $20 million granted to the Greater Cincinnati community since its inception in 1962 and nearly $8 million since 2004. The Andrew Jergens Foundation has been an effective and meaningful way for the trustees – some local and some not, some family and some not – to play a role in improving the lives of children in our region.

The funds will help iSPACE Provide LEGO math and engineering programs to approximately 300 second grade students and their teachers from schools with 50% or greater underserved populations.
