Funding timelines:  Funds will be available July 1, 2018 and must be spent by May 1, 2019.

Selection criterion:  Each application will be scored based on the following criteria:

  • Project directly supports student learning.
  • Application clearly describes specific student outcomes and how success of the project will be measured.
  • Outcomes are tied to the District’s Strategic Direction Indicators AND the project reflects one or more of the District’s Commitment to Students.
  • Learning activities are creative and encourage active student participation.
  • Budget is complete, accurate and supports proposed activities.
  • Please see attached Scoring Rubric.

The Foundation seeks to fund a wide range of projects across the preK-12 continuum. Each proposal is evaluated based on the current application and projects that received grant awards in years past are not guaranteed funding.

Requirements:                                             

  • Complete Application, no more than 4 pages including cover page and budget description.
  • Application must have principal’s signature.
  • Awardee or their designee attend the Foundation’s annual grant awards ceremony on Thursday, May 24.
  • All grant recipients agree to acknowledge the Foundation’s funding in at least two specific ways, and will complete a project evaluation by the end of the 2018-2019 school year. Please be prepared to share photographs and student impact stories so that we can, in turn, share your successes with your project donors. Failure to do so could prevent approval of future Foundation classroom grant applications.
