It targets high-ability, mostly low- to moderate-income, minority students with an interest in math and science. YEP Plus is getting $17,000 to support its efforts to address the needs ofelementary school age children living in poverty in Caddo and Bossier parishes. A third grant of $11,000 goes to the Biomedical Research Roundation for its BioStart Boot Camp.” Each year, members of the WPN use 80-percent of their membership dues to make high-impact gifts in the Shreveport-Bossier while the remaining 20-percent is added to an endowment fund at The Community Foundation. Since 2005, the WPN has contributed more than $500,000 to local education programs and its endowment has grown to more than $223,000.
