The North Central Education Foundation was formed in 2008 to support classroom learning by providing small but meaningful teacher grants to creative and innovative teachers in North Central Washington.
The foundation continues to grow and provide more grant funding to regional teachers every year. In 2010, the foundation gave its first eight grants totaling $2,000. In 2021, the foundation awarded over 155 grants totaling over $44,000. That’s a 22-fold increase in grants awarded in just 12 years. This year we were delighted to award grants to teachers in 28 out of 29 districts in the North Central ESD region!
