Posted on by .
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 12, 2008
Ethnic Technologies has learned that The Main Line Chinese Culture Center, Inc. of Wynnewood Pennsylvania has received a $22,900 grant from the Shirley and Morrison C. Boyd Fund of The Philadelphia Foundation. Announcement of the grant was made by R. Andrew Swinney, President of the Foundation, whose Board of Managers approved the grant.
“We are so pleased to see important groups like The Philadelphia Foundation supporting The Main Line Chinese Culture Center”, said Zachary Wilhoit, Chief Executive Officer of Ethnic Technologies. “The Main Line Chinese Culture Center reaches out to so many children and their families with valuable insights on Chinese-American culture and the significant implications for our future relationships with China”.
Michael Wong, Interim Executive Director of the Main Line Chinese Culture Center, said the funds would help the firm to build its organizational effectiveness. The Main Line Chinese Culture Center was started in 2003 by Ms. Xia Li to provide Mandarin language and cultural insights of China to interested children. Growing from 30 to over 200 students in less than five years, the non-profit organization provides its services via weekend and summer camp programs. With over 90% of its current students being of Chinese-American descent, the organization is striving to increase the awareness of its program offerings to other diverse population segments of the Greater Philadelphia area so that interested parents can provide invaluable lifelong skills that their children will likely need given China’s growing economic relationship to the United States.
The Philadelphia Foundation, a public charity, is Southeastern Pennsylvania’s leading center for community philanthropic engagement and is committed to improving the quality of life in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties through funds established by its donors. The mission of The Philadelphia Foundation is as vital now as it was in 1918 when it was first established. Today, with more than $325 million in charitable assets under management, The Philadelphia Foundation continues to help donors harness their generosity and vision by providing tools, knowledge, and financial stewardship directed to maximize the strategic impact of charitable contributions. Grants from more than 750 charitable funds strengthen the effectiveness of nonprofits and support programs that are vital to the people of this region.
