The Spring 2018 grant application cycle is now open.
The Fairview Park Education Foundation was formed in our community to provide additional financial support for our schools. The purpose of the Foundation is to provide funds not available from public monies for enrichment of school curriculum, the enhancement of instruction and the implementation of other appropriate activities to achieve specific educational goals.
Since 1984, the Foundation has awarded more than 250 grants to staff from pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade. The grants are funded through individual donations and through proceeds from various fundraisers. We hope many of you will apply for a grant.
Our final selections, as always, will be based on the funds available to us, the number of petitioning grants and the amount of the dollars requested, which must meet the stated goals of the Foundation. Grants, generally, may not be given on consecutive and/or subsequent years unless such funds are available based on the number and dollars requested. If a grant is not approved in one year, it does not preclude anyone for requesting the grant in subsequent years. We ask that when the grants are awarded, they should be used within one year of the approval letter date. We also ask that you provide a report with pictures after completion of your grant. Remember, the more students at the various levels who can benefit from the projects – the better.
