COPE24 just received a $2,500.00 grant from the Grainger Foundation. These funds will be used to impact students directly. Very soon COPE24 will begin offering a grant application process whereby teachers can gain access to our curriculum and videos for free. This donation will jump start this new program. Thank you Grainger.
