The Bachman Foundation has awarded more than $8,000 to two local educational institutions, during its quarterly meeting at Bradley Executive Plaza.
The two recipients, Cleveland Christian School and Mending Arrow Ranch, received $4,860 and $4,000, respectively.
Foundation board member Ken Weller said the two organizations were integral to helping children develop and learn.
"Helping hands that help children, that's what we are all about," Weller said.
Kayla Davis, CEO of Mending Arrow Ranch, said her school has 26 students, with "15 more on the waiting list."
She said the funds will help educate more children.
Cleveland Christian School Principal Margaret Strickland said 86 children are enrolled in her school in grades K-5 through 12.
She said the school opened in 1983.
According to its website, CCS "is but one of the many ministries of Cleveland Christian Fellowship promoting the “total family ministry” concept. The pastor, trustees, and staff of CCS believe God commissioned this school at the local church for our children."
Mending Arrow Ranch's website states the school provides "a safe haven" for its students.
"Each child has to deal with their own set of unique challenges," their website states. "We want to give these children a way to experience healing and personal growth through the interactions with our horses."
The Bachman Foundation was established when Bachman Academy was closed in 2017. The proceeds from the sale of its 200 acres campus are used to make the donations to organizations.
