Community Foundation Accepts Stronger Schools Grant Applications


The Community Foundation of NCW is now accepting applications for its Stronger Schools grant program that supports public schools and school districts serving grades Pre-K through 12 in Chelan, Douglas, and Okanogan counties.

Application deadline is March 15, 2017.

Up to $5,000 is available for programs that enrich school experiences for students, support teacher development, and provide opportunities for schools to better achieve their goals.

Applications can be submitted by teachers, PTSAs, staff, or supporting foundations. Only one application can be submitted per school with principal’s approval, but can include multiple projects.

New this year, school districts are also eligible to apply for programs that will provide district-wide programs or opportunities. School districts may apply in addition to schools within their district.

Stronger Schools grant awards are disbursed in May and must be used within the 2017-2018 academic school year.

Last year, the Community Foundation of NCW awarded $50,370 in Stronger Schools grants to twelve schools across the region, supporting music education, robotics, field trips, and more.
