Grants

Selection Criteria

Consideration will be given to proposals that:

  • Impact a large number of students.
  • Have the potential to make a significant impact or change.
  • Have matching funds if possible.
  • Demonstrate the lack of other available supporting funding.
  • Will be used for projects that provide long term value.
  • Enhance and augment, but not duplicate, the standard school curriculum.
  • Demonstrate partnerships between teachers, schools, and academic disciplines.

Applications may be made by individuals or groups. The above list of factors is not meant to be an all-inclusive list of all factors that the Foundation will consider. Rather, this list is a guideline for applicants as they consider making an application for a grant.

Grants are not awarded:

  • For multiple year commitments.
  • To projects that serve religious purposes.
  • For political or lobbying activities.
  • To provide direct support to individuals, except for education/tuition scholarships.
  • For debt reduction.
  • To organizations that discriminate in any way.
  • For iPad apps or iTunes gift cards note: the reason is that apps put on iPads are owned by the individual, not the district; so if the person leaves, the apps go with him or her.

Grantees will be required to prepare and submit a Final Grant Report at the end of the project that will describe the success and impact of the project.
