Impact Grants

Program Overview

Backed by some of the community’s major corporate education supporters, the Foundation supports creative learning initiatives in the classroom. In fact, since the establishment of these grants, the Foundation has awarded more than $2.7 million to over 4,700 Orange County Public School teachers.

Focus areas include STEM, civics, energy education, arts and classroom libraries. These grants give teachers extra resources to engage students and directly impact learning gains.
 
The Foundation is constantly working with businesses and the community to pursue new programs that benefit our students, teachers and schools. If you have an idea, we want to hear about it.
