Healthier kids do better in school. And when they grow up, kids who did better in school do better. They tend to be healthier adults who live longer, more fulfilling lives.
Healthy Kids is one of Impact Alamance’s three focus areas. We fund projects and programs that help get all children, 0-5, physically, socially, cognitively and emotionally ready to succeed in school. We also support projects that build healthier environments where we live, work and play, ultimately increasing children’s access to healthy foods and physical activity.
In 2015, Impact Alamance invested $1.25 million — 60 percent of our grant-making activity — in Healthy Kids initiatives.
