Seeding creativity, innovation, and enhanced learning opportunities
Since 2017, our foundation has offered a select number of classroom mini-grants of up to $500 per educator or classroom in the North Wasco County School District #21. The mini-grant funds go to teachers and staff who find better ways to teach, new subjects to explore or to purchase needed enrichment supplies or equipment. The program is open to any North Wasco County School District teacher, staff, or district employee. Requests for proposals are released each fall.
In the 2021-2022 school year, two requests for proposals will be made in the fall and the spring. The fall RFP is now open with applications due on October 1, 2021. Click here for the application.
