INCLUDING:

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

The Freehold Borough Educational Foundation is pleased to announce the 2020 Small 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 Small Grants Program of the Foundation has been very successful thanks to the input and ingenuity of
our teachers in the Freehold Borough school district. Grants awarded through the current call for proposals can be instituted anytime
during the Spring 2020 or Fall 2020 Semester.

 
THREE TYPES OF GRANTS
WILL BE OFFERED THIS YEAR:
MINI-GRANT OF UPTO $750

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

COLLABORATIVE GRANT UPTO $1500

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

GRADE LEVEL SUPER GRANTS

Grade Level Super Grants meant to fund a project serving the teachers for an entire grade.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: MONDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 2019

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

A final report, detailing project outcomes and expenditures, will be required for submission to the Foundation upon completion of the project(s). A report form will be provided to grantees along with award letters. Please take a moment to review the Grant Criteria and the Foundation’s Mission Statement and Primary Funding Areas included in this packet.
