Foundation / Corporation
Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley (CFHV)
Grants ranging from $500 and $1,000 to New York middle and high School teachers in Orange, Ulster and Dutchess Counties for the purchase of school science equipment to support learning. Funded equipment is intended to support programs that stimulate interest in careers in science and promote college readiness.
Funding priority will be given to requests that are well-written and for equipment that is durable and will serve a large number of students. Requests that include information relative to how the lessons using the equipment will positively impact students, spur their interest in science-related careers and provide a strong educational foundation for the college-level curriculum will receive special consideration. Requests that note equipment sharing across schools within the same district are also encouraged.
