The Citizens Bank Foundation presented President John Fry with a 100,000 dollar grant on March 1st at an open house for the Dana and David Dornsife Center for Neighborhood Partnerships. The grant will begin a partnership between the Foundation and Drexel to launch Growing Communities, an grassroots initiative that will work to educate community members on financial literacy through small business development programs and help with tax preparation.
Dana Dornsife, a Drexel alum, along with her husband David established the Dornsife Center in 2012 with a 10 million dollar grant to the University. The Center’s services include health and wellness programming, a free law clinic, tutoring and homework help, and much more.
