Shakespeare at Winedale recently received a generous $5,000 grant from the RBC Foundation- USA to fund the program’s Shakespeare Outreach program, which brings Shakespeare into the lives of deserving children in and around central Texas.
Shakespeare at Winedale Outreach, housed in the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Texas, is a Language Arts enrichment program that provides opportunities for meaningful learning and academic excellence for Texas schoolchildren in grades K-12, with a special focus on both emerging and advanced readers in grades 3 through 8, and on students in low-income communities.
“We are extremely grateful for the support that RBC has given to our program over several years,” said Shakespeare at Winedale director James Loehlin, “Shakespeare at Winedale Outreach depends on grant support to carry out our educational mission.”
The mission of the RBC Foundation- USA is to improve the quality of life in the communities where RBC Wealth Management has a business presence by supporting non-profit organizations that make a positive difference. The foundation focuses on three core areas: arts and culture, human services and youth education.
The culture at RBC Wealth Management is deeply rooted in being a trusted partner of its clients and to communities the firm serves.
