Project Funding allows the Foundation to fund requests of administrators and teachers to support a project or activity when funding is not provided by the school district’s budget and the request does not meet the timeframe for a Classroom Grant. Project Funding requests must align with the Foundation’s mission and applications may be submitted throughout the year, as needs arise.
Project Funding Applications can only be submitted by administrators and staff who work directly with students (teacher, principal, counselor, coach, librarian, etc.) and school sponsored organizations or clubs.
If you would like to support the Project Funding Program, you can make a secure online donation today!
