Denise M. Graham Endowment Fund
Denise Graham 1954 - 2010
God saw that you were tired, and a cure was not to be; so He put His arms around you and whispered, "Come home with me." With tearful eyes we watched you suffer, and saw you fade away; Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, a determined spirit was at rest; God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
Denise Graham was a founding board member of Dancing Classrooms Northeast Ohio. Through the establishment of this endowment fund, Denise's legacy and desire to help children succeed will continue to be carried forward for generations to come through the work of the Dancing Classrooms program.
Dancing Classrooms Northeast Ohio will award annual grants that equal approximately 15% of the Fund's annual net asset value to schools for the implementation of the Dancing Classrooms residency through an application process. An annual announcement to Northeast Ohio schools will be made along with a request for proposals. Upon the application's deadline, the Endowment Fund committee will review all proposals and score accordingly. The school(s) selected to receive a grant through the Endowment Fund will receive restricted funds that must be applied toward the implementation of their school's Dancing Classrooms residency.
