What types of things can I ask for in a grant?
Foundation grants typically fund projects that propose new and innovative ideas that will impact and transform student and/or community learning.
How can I submit my grant proposal?
You can complete your grant application online here or by downloading the pdf of the application form on the same page. If you download the pdf, please keep the narrative of your grant proposal to 3 pages or less. This page limit does not include prices lists of items to be purchased.
Who do I inform that I working on a grant proposal?
If you are a school district employee, your proposal will ideally be designed to support and enhance student learning in alignment with district goals, objectives, and initiatives. Because of this, you should recruit the assistance of the Director of 21st Century Learning and your building’s 21st Century Learning Coach as early as possible. They will guide you through the application process and will connect you with all of the best resources as you develop and refine your proposal.
If you are submitting an educational grant request to benefit the community, not the school district, please visit Contact Us to send any questions you have along the way.
Who needs to sign off on my grant proposal before I submit it to the GHMCEF?
Within the school district, you should have approval from your building principal and the Director of 21st Century Learning. If your grant includes technology purchases, you will also need the signature of the Director of Technology Operations.
