2023 Tandem Foundation Awards $40,000 to Davis Schools
For the past 22 years, the Tandem Foundation has distributed up to $40,000 annually to the Davis public schools.
This year the Tandem Foundation received 22 requests totaling $55,727. The Tandem Partners, John Whitcombe and Bill Roe, have decided again this year, to award an additional $10,000 in memory of their late partner Paul Makley, for a total of $40,000 in grant money.
We are delighted to fully fund 18 requests and partially fund 4 requests totaling $40,000.
It is our hope that the Tandem Foundation will be able to continue our tradition of supporting our community and its youth.
DJUSD principals are encouraged to watch for an email from Tandem each year inviting each of them to apply on behalf of their school.
