2017-2018 Grants

Our 2017-2018 grant cycle is now open! The Foundation is now accepting grant applications to fund innovative educational programs to Farmington Public Schools’ staff, PTAs/PTSAs, booster groups and school support organizations who seek funding for additional resources that support creative ideas and challenging opportunities for the students of Farmington Public Schools. Please note: the Foundation has moved to a single grant application cycle. This will be the only opportunity to apply for funding in this school year. Foundation grants promote educational leadership and academic excellence in four investment areas: Technology Integration, Scholastic Achievement, The Arts and Extracurricular Enrichment. The Foundation encourages projects which can be developed, shared and replicated throughout FPS. For this cycle the foundation is particularly interested in projects with goals that support S.T.E.M. / S.T.E.A.M. outcomes in our school communities.

With the generous support of our donors, the Foundation offers three types of grants: Mini Grants (up to $750), Collaborative Grants (up to $1,500) and Major Project Grants (up to $5,000). Major Project Grants (which should impact schools across the district) submitted will be reviewed with district leadership prior to the Grant Allocation’s Committee’s decision. The number of grants awarded will be dependent upon the number of applications received, district initiatives and available funds
