The Milford Schools Foundation is proud to be apart of the community and to be able to help enhance the learning abilities and experiences for all students. If you have a request for funding for a project for your class or school please feel free to submit a application.

The Milford Schools Foundation provides funding for grant requests that support the academic programs, services, and capital improvement grants of the Milford Exempted Village School District. Grant requests will be awarded to support traditional academic subjects, the arts, music, technology, athletics, emergency funds, special education, and other high impact projects.

Final Grant Request Impact Report (for grant request recipients)

To date, the Milford Schools Foundation has awarded more than $200,000 in teacher grant requests to help supplement and support educators in the classroom. Your feedback is important to us and helps us to see if our efforts are having a positive impact in Milford Schools. If you received funding, please take a moment to fill out our online final grant request impact report after your project has been implemented in your classroom.

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 request.

Grant requests 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.

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