Grant Application

The grant application for the 2018-2019 school year is now closed.

Overview:

The Foundation encourages St. Vrain Valley School District teachers, schools, and selected programs to submit grant applications for proposals which support the District’s strategic direction, supplement standard curriculum and enhance efforts to meet student learning needs. More specifically we are interested in providing support for proposals that:

-Focus on closing the achievement gap for underperforming students
-Encourages life-long learning

Process:

Applicants should complete the grant request form below and submit it by September 21st. Only one grant request per teacher will be accepted. Prior to submission, the grant request should be reviewed with your school principal or supervisor, as appropriate. If requesting hardware or software, please contact the SVVSD Technology Store (http://store.stvrain.k12.co.us) to ensure that the technology is supported by the district. All grant applications will be reviewed by a committee composed of Directors of the Education Foundation and members of the community. The committee will use a rubric to evaluate each proposal. The rubric is consistent with the grant application questions. The committee will give a priority ranking to each of the grant applications and provide a recommendation to the Board of Directors for funding.

Award Amounts:

Grants are reviewed on a case-by-case basis; however, most successful applicants seek funding in the $500 – $2,000 range.  The Education Foundation allows funding requests from all content areas of education.

-General Funding

-STEM Funding

Please highlight the correct category in your application for your grant request.

Evaluation:

Each recipient of an Education Foundation Grant will be asked to complete an electronic evaluation form prior to the next grant cycle. The evaluation will include a summary of the details of the grant activity and the level of success achieved. Information on the number of participants, learner outcomes, and overall evaluation of the proposal will also be requested. Completion of the evaluation form will make the grantee eligible for future grants.

Publicity:

Grant recipients are asked to publicize the grant in parental newsletters and other local media. Such publicity should highlight the funded project and its success and identify the Education Foundation as the source of the funding grant. Grant recipients may be asked to submit a picture and brief quote regarding the impact of the grant to support EFSVV promotional campaigns.
