Apply for a Grant

We are pleased to invite all District 46 staff members to apply for Foundation46 grant funds. Grant applications must be received by April 1, 2017 to be considered for the current cycle.  Once an application is submitted, it is considered valid for two calendar years. If you do not receive funding during the current grant cycle, you might be awarded the grant at a later date. If you receive funding from another source during this time, we ask that you simply send us a note withdrawing your request.

Which projects are likely to be funded? We prioritize funding of projects that are innovative, enriching, and reach as many students as possible. We seek to provide funding for resources that extend above and beyond what would be considered necessary and essential resources to meet curricular needs.

Wondering what makes a grant application great? Your application should paint a clear picture of what you and/or your students will be doing and how it will enhance learning.

Two types of grants are offered:
We recommend completing online applications from computers and NOT tablet devices.
Project Grant Application – projects between $500 and $1,000 (please consider whether or not projects of less than $500 can be managed at the building level)
Impact Grant Application – projects over $1,000
