• Dear Teachers –

    THANK YOU to everyone who submitted proposals for projects this year! We’ve reached the end of available funds for both general grants (The Arts, Academic Enrichment, Literacy, and Schools + Community) and STEM projects during the 2016-2017 academic calendar. However, we DO still have funding available  for approximately 15 Earth Day projects up to $250 each. You will find the clickable, download-able, fill out-able, printable application document below.

    ALSO – for those who’ve received approved project funding for this year, please recall that your Grant Reports are due back electronically to the Foundation office (via this email address) by Thursday, June 1, 2017. Please type this way or call the office with any questions. You will also find the Reporting document below. PLEASE REMEMBER TO SAVE your report with the name of your project, so that the Foundation office staff maintains its sanity.

    The Earth Day application is HERE

    All the best,
