Chronically ill students at Kunsberg School receive $25,000 from Daniels Fund


OCTOBER 29, 2009

DENVER — The Kunsberg School for chronically ill children on the campus of National Jewish Health recently received a $25,000 grant from the Daniels Fund.

 

Kunsberg School is a unique day school program for kindergarten through eighth-grade students whose chronic illnesses may prohibit their attendance in a normal public school. Students receive individual and structured education programs to assist them in achieving academic and physical excellence, and prepare them to become independent, self-reliant and responsible. From three nurses, the 82 students in the school learn specific medical self-care practices, enabling them to monitor and manage their illnesses and to go on to lead productive, meaningful and active lives. The students pay no tuition to attend the school.

The Daniels Fund operates the Daniels Fund Scholarship Program and the Daniels Fund Grants Program in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. The Fund was established in 1997 by Bill Daniels, a pioneer in cable television known for his kindness and generosity to those in need.
