Now Accepting Applications for Stronger Schools Grant

Clovis Point Intermediate School received a $5,000 Stronger Schools grant in 2016 to support a summer library at Rock Island Elementary, where there is no public library access. Students came each week to read, play games, do art projects, and more.

Application Deadline: March 15, 2017

The Community Foundation of NCW is now accepting applications for its Stronger Schools grant program that supports public schools and school districts serving grades Pre-K through 12 in Chelan, Douglas, and Okanogan counties.

Up to $5,000 is available for programs that enrich school experiences for students, support teacher development, and provide opportunities for schools to better achieve their goals.

Applications can be submitted by teachers, staff, PTSAs, or supporting foundations. Only one application can be submitted per school with principal’s approval, but can include multiple projects.

New this year, school districts are also eligible to apply for programs that will provide district-wide programs or opportunities. School districts may apply in addition to schools within their district.

Stronger Schools grant awards are disbursed in May and must be used within the 2017-2018 academic school year.

Last year, the Community Foundation of NCW awarded $50,370 in Stronger Schools grants to twelve schools across the region, supporting music education, robotics, field trips, and more.

"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.
