This year, we will be accepting applications for projects in the following categories:
Social/Emotional Wellness – Social/Emotional Wellness grants seek to provide resources to fund strategies or programs designed to support emotional and social wellness efforts that fall outside the traditional instructional model. These programs may support student, classroom or community social and emotional wellness. Funded with the help of generous community partners.
Patriots Character and Civic Education – The Patriots Grant promotes educational programs that support the development of citizenship, knowledge of the history of the local community, patriotism and civic pride, and ethical values as a basis of good character. Funded in partnership with the Clovis Veterans Memorial District.
Other Classroom/School/Program Projects – Projects that are not related to the above categories may apply in the Other Classroom/School/Program Projects category.
