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.

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.

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?
