Merlin Receives $7,000 Grant from PLATO for their 2018-2019 Philosophy in the Community Program(s)

We are ALIVE WITH JOY!  Rainbows and butterflies abound!  We just received word that for the 2nd year in a row, PLATO is awarding our organization a grant for our Philosophy in the Community programs.…and this year in the amount of $7,000! 

Recognizing the importance of greater access to philosophy for all adults, youth, and children, as well as the scarcity of funds available for philosophy programs, PLATO (Philosophy Learning & Teaching Organization) created the PLATO Philosophy Fund (PPF), which provides funding for a wide range of innovative philosophy programs with the aim of broadening philosophy’s reach. The expectation is that many of these programs will take place in public and other non-traditional settings.

Thank you so much to PLATO for believing in our vision and awarding us $7,000 for our 2018-2019 Philosophy in the Community Program(s).  Your grant will help us support philosophy in the Helena & surrounding areas for Youth, Adults & Elders!

We are honored to have been selected by such a prestigious organization for two years in a row and are looking forward to providing the Helena & surrounding communities with unique, fun & accessible opportunities to do, breathe & live philosophy!  Thank you so much, PLATO!
