Grants of up to $300 to Jay County, Indiana teachers to help cover the costs of learning experiences that are important to the education of their students, yet are outside of the school's budget. Funds may be used for class projects, field trips, programs, speakers, music or art instruction, educational materials, seminars, and other uses at the discretion of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees.
Creative projects are strongly encouraged. The more creative your project is, the better its chances of receiving funding.
The Foundation is very reluctant to provide funding for on-going projects, projects that have been funded through this program in the past, and materials and projects that could reasonably be expected to be included in school budgets. However, exceptions to this may be made at the discretion of the Board of Trustees.
GrantWatch ID#: 163788
Grants are for $300 or less.
Once a grant is received, the Foundation anticipates that the funds shall be expended during the calendar year awarded. Failure to use funds for the purpose designated will result in obligation to repay grant money! If it appears implementation of the project or program will be delayed, the grant recipient must submit a written explanation which contains a request to encumber the funds for the following calendar/fiscal year. The Foundation’s Board of Trustees will determine if the funds may be held over or if the applicant must reapply in a subsequent grant cycle.
Jay County, Indiana school teachers are eligible.
