Grade Level Super Grant (up to $5,000)

The Freehold Borough Educational Foundation is pleased to announce the 2023 Grants Program to assist you and your students in creating new opportunities for teaching and learning not funded through the normal school budget process. The continuing goal of this program is to spark innovation in our schools and to give teachers an opportunity to put their creative ideas to work in the classroom.

Over the years, the Grants Program of the Foundation has been very successful thanks to the input and ingenuity of our teachers in the Freehold Borough school district. Since our founding in 1999, we have funded nearly $300,000 in grants to teachers and staff in the district. Grants awarded through the current call for proposals can be instituted anytime
during the Spring 2023 or Fall 2023 Semester.

 
THREE TYPES OF GRANTS
WILL BE OFFERED THIS YEAR:
INDIVIDUAL GRANT OF UP TO $1,000

meant to serve one teacher, one
classroom and one project idea.

COLLABORATIVE GRANT UP TO $2,500

meant to serve two or more teachers that can fund projects involving multiple classrooms, departments or whole schools.

GRADE LEVEL SUPER GRANTS UP TO $5,000

meant to fund a project serving the teachers and students for an entire grade.

DEADLINE FOR 2023 SUBMISSIONS: Thursday, December 1, 2022

Winners will be announced in January, at which time the funds will be transferred to the Board of Education for disbursement.
