Request a Grant Writer

Grants of $500 and grants of up to $5,000 to Groton, Connecticut public and private schools, libraries, and other nonprofit organizations for new and innovative educational programs. Funding is intended to provide educators with the necessary resources to pilot learning projects and help develop new learning processes.

Mini Grants and Extended Grants are available. 

Each year the Foundation looks to build on past successes, continuing and expanding some projects, while providing startup funding for others.

Applicants whose program proposals place a strong emphasis on educational value and innovation and have a plan to measure the impact of the program will be given higher scores in the evaluation process.

GrantWatch ID#: 175201

Number of Grants:

Up to three extended grants will be awarded once a year.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Mini-grants are normally awarded in the amount of $500, however, larger amounts may be considered for cooperative projects that benefit larger sectors of the Groton educational community.

Extended grants are awarded up to $5,000 for projects of a larger scope.

Term of Contract:

Grant awards received through the public schools must be spent within one year. If the recipient is unable to meet this deadline, an extension request must be made. If an extension request is not made, unspent money will be placed back into the GEF account.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The Foundation solicits mini and extended grant applications from Groton schools, public and private, and from other education institutions, such as Groton's libraries, The Groton Senior Center, Art Associations, and Historical Associations.

The Foundation does not award grants to “for-profit” institutions.

Requests for supplies or services (i.e. books, iPads, bussing, etc.) without a programming component will not be considered.

Professional development will not be funded except in exceptional circumstances as determined by the grant committee. If you feel PD is needed for the program, include it in your application and the Grant Committee will evaluate it.

Pre-Application Information:

Deadline for grant applications:
- Mini and Extended Grants: October 1
- Mini-Grants only: April 30

The Foundation awards provide seed money for new projects, not to supplant operating expenses and, therefore, the same project will not be considered more than three times.
