TYPES OF GRANTS AVAILABLE
Mini Grants - Funds up to $1,500 to educators for enrichment projects or programs and the associated equipment and materials.
Time-sensitive grants that do not coincide with the annual grant cycle may also be considered throughout the year. These “out-of-cycle” proposals will usually not exceed $1,500. Please refer to the Mini Grant Application Instructions for more information.
Program Grants - Funds of more than $1,500 for novel programs which support multidisciplinary projects, and/or collaborative grade level, school level, and community projects. Projects should enhance the educational experience and demonstrate the viability of model programs that could be implemented throughout the community. This category also includes “professional-in-residence” programs that bring skilled artisans or experts into the classroom or community to work with students.
Directed Grants - Projects that are global in scope and benefit a broad range of students, multiple schools and disciplines, grade levels and the entire Avon community.
Founders’ Fund Grants - The Founders’ Fund has been established to make funds available to previous grant recipients and their successors to update, improve or expand an existing program that previously received grant funding from the Foundation.
