Grants of up to $500, $1,000, and $5,000 to Michigan students and individuals representing nonprofit educational organizations and schools for a wide range of educational programs serving students in eligible regions. Funding may be used for both basic and more innovative programming for schools, and for student-initiated projects in Rockford.
REF’s mission is to provide funding for educational opportunities, both basic and innovative, in the Rockford community. Some of this funding each year is through our School Year Small & Large Grant and Student Grant programs.
Large Grants that are innovative in nature or intended to fund new, pilot programs that, if successful could be implemented more broadly, will be looked upon favorably. In addition to the online application, Large Grants require a 5-10 minute presentation or video submission to the REF Board of Trustees. Additional information and guidelines regarding the presentation or video submission will be provided after application is reviewed.
Student Grant requests must be initiated by the student(s).
