Examples of Successful Grants

The best grants are those that clearly state how philanthropic dollars will allow a teacher to enhance a lesson, allow students to apply concepts, or demonstrate ideas in various ways to reach children who have different learning styles. All grants are trying to impact student achievement.

The grant process is competitive, and unfortunately funds are not always available to award every worthwhile grant. Details count -- an accurate budget, descriptive narrative without spelling mistakes, appropriate timeline and measurable outcomes are all required. Below are some successful grants that were awarded in the 2011-2012 school year.
