Request a Grant Writer

Grants generally ranging from $100 to $1,000 to Lanesborough, Massachusetts nonprofit organizations and individuals for projects that will benefit elementary school students. Students, teachers, school staff, parents, and community members are encouraged to apply for projects that will increase student achievement, both in and out of the classroom.

Applications will be reviewed using the following criteria:

- Excellence: Is the project or service truly of high quality? Is it the right time for the project? Does it involve qualified individuals/groups?
- Impact: What is the potential impact of the project or service on the school community? This does not mean the number of people involved, but rather the quality of the impact.
- Ability: Is the project well thought out and feasible?

Possible projects include, but are not limited to: independent study, new programs, extracurricular activities, individual creative projects (in or outside the classroom), visiting speakers, artists-in-residence, professional development for teachers, scientific, athletic, or technical equipment, library resources, and class field trips.

Grants awarded will generally range from $100 to $1,000.

Grants from the fund will not replace public dollars for the school district. LIFE seeks primarily to help cover the direct costs of projects (not salaries). Priority will be given to proposals that rely on volunteer efforts and that show additional means of support.

Berkshire Taconic does not support organizations that, in their constitution, by-laws, or practice, discriminate against a person or group on the basis of age, race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, political affiliation or religious belief.
