Grants of up to $2,000 to Appleton, Wisconsin public school teachers, community members, and students to enhance the educational experience. Funding is available for projects that enhance academic instruction, staff professional development, and extra-curricular activities.

Program Areas:

1) “Choose Your Focus” ($100 - $750)

Proposals will be accepted for projects that creatively enhance the education and instruction of students in any academic discipline. Grant money may not be used for operating expenses, such as for payment of substitute teachers or travel.

Additional funding (up to a maximum of $2,000) may be available for projects that involve multiple classrooms, cross disciplines, or involve more than one school.

2) Professional Development (Up to $2,000)

The AEF will look favorably at requests for funds to bring speakers to the AASD to address a group of educators on a particular topic of interest and requests that follow the “train the trainer” model. The AEF does not fund conference fees or expenses related to district staff attending professional development programming.

Committee members will consider such factors as total number of staff attending, degree of speaker connection to district/school goals, and available revenue when making the decision.

The Grants Committee may on occasion recommend that the $2,000 cap be exceeded.

3) Co-Curricular Education & Training Grants (Up to $2,000)

Grants support education or training of student or coach participants in co-curricular activities. For this program, co-curricular activities are defined as those involving performance, publication or competition in which students represent the school and do not receive academic credit.

These may include interscholastic athletics (but not intramural athletics), debate and other organizations that have competitions (such as DECA), put on performances (such as drama) or produce publications (such as school newspapers or yearbooks) where the group represents the school as part of the competition, performance or publication.

The Foundation typically funds grants up to $750 for a project that involves a single classroom or up to $2,000 for a project that involves more than one classroom, crosses disciplines or involves more than one school.

“Choose Your Focus” grants range from $100 to $750. Additional funding, up to a maximum of $2,000 may be available for projects involving multiple classrooms, disciplines, or schools.

Professional Development grants may be up to $2,000. The Grants Committee may on occasion recommend that the $2,000 cap be exceeded.
