Education & Empowerment
The mission of the Education & Empowerment Grants Committee is to enhance foundational learning in our community by funding educational experiences that are responsive to changing community needs and maximize the learning potential of every resident from pre-K through career, preparing them to succeed in the 21st century.
Types of Funding:
Consideration will be given for multiple types of funding designed to meet the priority considerations of this committee.
Priority consideration for the next five years will be given to 6th-8th grade programs that encourage personal and leadership development skills that lead to high school success and graduation, as well as school programs that encourage the integration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Priority consideration will also be given to programs that support parental involvement in early childhood education.
Funding in future years will be contingent upon measured outcomes as evidenced in the evaluation report. All multi-year grants will be contingent upon measured outcomes that meet or exceed expectations.
