Now Accepting Applications for Stronger Schools Grants

IMG_9137Application Deadline: March 15, 2016

The Community Foundation of NCW is now accepting applications for Stronger Schools grants, awarding up to $5,000 to support public education in North Central Washington.

To be eligible, Stronger Schools applicants must serve Pre-K through 12 public schools in Chelan, Douglas, and Okanogan counties (excluding the Methow Valley School District which is supported by the Methow Valley Fund).

The foundation seeks to fund creative, innovative programs that inspire students, enhance academics, improve the school’s environment, and make learning fun and accessible.

Activities considered include: innovative programs responding to changes in the school; seed funding for new and creative programs that offer opportunities for positive change; programs that serve low-income or at-risk student; programs that facilitate collaboration among staff and/or advance the strategic plan; and programs that identify, enhance, and expand leadership opportunities for student.

Activities generally not supported include: core operating expenses that should be included in the school budget; endowment, capital, and annual fund drives; multi-year grants; funding for items purchased prior to grant; sponsorships or activities related to fundraising.

Only one application may be submitted per school and must be approved by the school principal to submit. Multiple programs or projects can be included in one application, including requests from PTAs and Education Foundations.

For more information and to apply, visit our Stronger Schools page.

Scholarship Recipient

"My father was a migrant agricultural worker who eventually started his own cherry and apple orchard. [He] told me if I wanted to live a better life, I had to get an education. I plan on starting a career with the Chelan PUD with a passion for renewable energy and in turn give back to my parents and community for supporting my dreams.”

REGIONAL IMPACT GRANT RECIPIENT

The Regional Impact Grant provided funds to hire a Housing Justice and Outreach Coordinator to visit rural and underserved areas. Rosie’s bilingual and bicultural skills and experience have increased equity of service. Rosie is building partnerships with local organizations through events such as the Columbia Valley Community Health’s Back to School Drive, as well as posting yard signs.

STRATEGIC CONSULTING GRANT RECIPIENT

Due to being rural, remote, and geographically isolated Aero Methow Rescue Service must be prepared to do more than respond to emergencies. We have become a healthcare partner who fills gaps in service.  This program allows our board the time and ability to work with a Strategic Planner to modify our plan to address those gaps.
