RIDGEWOOD, N.J. - May 19, 2022 - PRLog -- The Bolger Foundation has announced the results of its November 1, 2021-February 1, 2022 funding cycle. Five grant recipients received a total of $322,750. The nonprofit organizations funded reflect The Bolger Foundation's focus on capital projects benefiting those underprivileged and underserved and/or relating to education, health, or historic preservation.

Dawn Treader Christian School of Paterson, NJ, received $125,000. The money will go towards replacing the fourth floor windows of their historic building. The school is located in the former Rosen Mill, built in the late 1800s. The fourth floor houses the school's gymnasium, which is also used by various community sports programs.

Lincoln Cooperative Preschool in Lincoln, VT, received $40,000 to fund expansion of their existing facility. This will enable them to enroll more children, thereby helping to meet local families' growing need for high-quality, affordable, full-day preschool.

Push to Walk (Oakland, NJ) received $12,750 for the purchase of a PhysioGait Dynamic & Static Unweighting System. Push to Walk is dedicated to helping people with spinal cord injuries and other forms of paralysis to optimize their quality of life. The PhysioGait will allow Push to Walk's clients to engage in walking  and standing exercises regardless of their level of impairment.

A previous Bolger Foundation grantee, Ridgewood YMCA of Ridgewood, NJ, received  $100,000 to invest in renovating and expanding Camp Bernie's infrastructure. For 65 years, the Y's Camp Bernie has provided a haven for youngsters of all backgrounds, belief systems, incomes, and orientations.

The camp currently serves more than 12,000 children each year. The YMCA's goal is to serve 20,000 campers annually by 2024.

The fifth Bolger Foundation beneficiary is The Hermitage. A National Historic Landmark located in Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ, this Dutch-American/Gothic Revival house museum encompasses 250 years of American history.
