Late last week, two of Ohio's largest foundations handed out grants to address a pair of our region's biggest challenges -- an educated workforce and regional cooperation. The Gund Foundation gave a $4 million dollar contribution to the Fund for Our Economic Future which works for regional development. The Cleveland Foundation also announced numerous grants. The largest by far was a $3 million grant to help with startup costs for the Cleveland Center for Arts and Technology. When it starts up next year, it will offer after school programs for at-risk teens. ideastream®'s Eric Wellman spoke with Bob Eckhardt, The Cleveland Foundation's Senior Vice President for Programs shortly after the grant was announced.
