Beyond the Classroom

The GALA Foundation believes that after-school activities play a significant role in shaping a child's life. The GALA Foundation wants to ensure the foster children of Mecklenburg County have that opportunity. We have established a fund to provide small grants for enrichment opportunities and for educational and personal needs of the foster children in care.



If you are a GAL and are interested in applying for a grant for your child client, please read the guidelines and then fill out the application below. Please make sure that you have looked into other sources of financial aid before submitting the application to us as we will not be able to approve all applications.
