Marian Foundation gives a Major Gift to the
Dominican Learning Center
Central Ohio Adult Learning Center teaches ESL, ABE, GED
Columbus, OH (5/10/17) – The end of the school year may be right around the corner, but at the Dominican Learning Center in Columbus, classes are just beginning. And thanks to a generous gift from the Marian Foundation of Columbus, the Dominican Learning Center will be able to continue its work of providing education to adults across Central Ohio.
Founded in 1954, the Marian Foundation is a Columbus-based charitable trust that supports service organizations for educational, scientific, religious and charitable programs. The Foundation’s trustees have made a $5,700 gift to the Dominican Learning Center.
“We are so grateful to the Marian Foundation for this generous gift,” said Sr. Barbara Kane, OP, Director of the Dominican Learning Center. “The Marian Foundation has supported us for a number of years because we dedicate every dollar of their support to our learners.”
“This most recent gift of $5,700 will provide our Adult Basic Education (ABE) and GED learners with the digital support that they need for an entire year. Our on-going support from the Marian Foundation is a real blessing to the Center and to the people that we serve,” Sr. Barbara said.
Currently, the Dominican Learning Center has more than 275 adult learners enrolled, from 49 countries around the world. One of the goals of the DLC is to promote peace and non-violence among immigrant communities in Central Ohio.
