Stronger Schools Grant provides up to $5,000 for public schools

Submitted by Community Foundation of NCW

WENATCHEE - The Community Foundation of NCW is now accepting applications for its Stronger Schools grant program that supports public schools and school districts serving grades Pre-K through 12 in Okanogan, Douglas and Chelan counties.

Application deadline is March 15, 2017.

Up to $5,000 is available for programs that enrich school experiences for students, support teacher development, and provide opportunities for schools to better achieve their goals.

Applications can be submitted by teachers, PTSAs, staff, or supporting foundations. Only one application can be submitted per school with principal's approval, but can include multiple projects.

New this year, school districts are also eligible to apply for programs that will provide district-wide programs or opportunities. School districts may apply in addition to schools within their district.

Stronger Schools grant awards are disbursed in May and must be used within the 2016-2017 academic school year.

Last year, the Community Foundation of NCW awarded $50,370 in Stronger Schools grants, to 12 schools across the region, supporting music education, robotics, field trips, and more.
