School and Program Mini-Grants
Providing grant opportunities is a direct and meaningful way to give back to the schools. Each year all District schools are invited to submit an application for up to $1,000 for an educational project that supports the vision of the Foundation. Special programs may apply for $500 or $250 mini-grants. Grant funds are designated to purchasing materials and/or equipments and may not be used to pay salaries. Grants have been awarded for all curriculum areas, including Art, Music, Drama, Physical Education, Technology, Science, and Language Arts. These grants provide learning opportunities that they may not otherwise have funds to implement.
Congratulations to the 2013-14 grant recipients!
