Each year, the Foundation invites teachers and schools across the district to submit proposals for innovative projects that enhance learning in a creative and motivational way. The program is a competitive process which ensures that the highest quality projects are funded.  These opportunities wouldn’t be possible without the support and generosity of donors.  

Applications are accepted for projects costing up to $10,000. Foundation Directors are assisted by District curriculum experts to determine which projects will have the greatest potential to improve educational experiences of students in a positive and unique way.

To date nearly $1 million has been awarded through the classroom and school grant program.  These funds have helped teachers increase the effectiveness of student learning.  Projects have included the creation of a school garden to make science come alive, technology to give a voice to severely disabled students and athletic gear to enable students in Title I schools to participate in co-curricular activities.  
If you would like to help provide resources to give our children unique educational opportunities, please consider sponsorship of a classroom grant at the $2,500, $5,000 or $10,000 level.
