Facebook Fort Worth Data Center Awards $15,000 to NEF

On Thursday, March 21, the Northwest ISD Education Foundation was named as a 2019 recipient of the Facebook Fort Worth Data Center Community Action Grants! The Community Actions Grant program was created to address needs in the City of Fort Worth area by putting the power of technology to use for community benefit, connecting people online or off, and improving STEM education.

NEF received a $15,000 grant to support STEM initiatives across Northwest ISD. Funds will support the foundation’s Innovative Teaching Grants to provide new technologies, resources, or collaborative spaces to elementary students at more than six district campuses.

Following the reception, Facebook employees gave a tour of the Fort Worth Data Center to grant recipients! Community Relations Specialist Alyssa Edstrom and board member Tamme Byers, who serves as Vice President of Finance & Governance, accepted the award. 

Thank you, Fort Worth Data Center!
