The North Central Education Foundation (NCEF) is gearing up for their 2022 Fall Campaign that will once again focus on small classroom grants (in the amount of $300) to help supplement teacher resources in the four counties served by North Central ESD (Chelan, Douglas, Grant and Okanogan).
The 2021-22 school year has been another challenge, but we are so inspired by the teachers in our region like you who are determined to stick with their students, despite all the difficulties dealing with students who are behind in learning because of Covid restrictions – and many who are impacted by social and emotional needs. You have adapted to requirements and have been able to incorporate new methods of teaching to engage your students in learning.
The North Central Education Foundation is again offering grant categories that are relevant to teachers’ needs. Educators may apply in the following categories:
- Music/Arts (provided by the Woods Family Music & Arts Fund)
- STEAM/STEM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math)
- Wellness/Social Emotional/Health
- Financial Education (funded by the Young Adult Consumer Education Trust)
- Cultural Awareness/Social Studies/History (provided by Friends of Lower Grand Coulee)
- 9/11 Spirit of America Memorial (in the cultural awareness category)
Deadline for North Central Education Foundation teacher grant application is September 30. You can fill out the application or go to www.loveteachers.org to access the application and learn more about Teacher Classroom Grants.
The Young Adult Consumer Education Trust (YACET) will fund grants supporting learning experiences that promote wise spending habits, financial discipline, and fiscal knowledge. This is In response to Washington State’s adoption of Financial Education K-12 Learning Standards. We are excited to once again partner with YACET to fill this important need.
The 9/11 Spirit of America Memorial Foundation is offering two $300 grant opportunities for students to reflect upon the significance of 9/11/2001 to our history and the impact on our society. Projects could center around an essay, an art or music project, an oral history, a flag mural, a tribute to those lost in the event, a field trip to the 9/11 Spirit of America Memorial and what it meant to them, a class civics project where students learn and discuss social repercussions of 9/11, etc. Suggestions and specific lesson plan ideas can be found on their website.
Friends of Lower Grand Coulee (FLGC) is once again offering funding available for $300 grants for Teacher Classroom awards in the areas of social studies, literacy, music and arts, STEM and STEAM, including projects or activities that occur inside or outside the classroom, or via remote learning. Preference will be given to projects or activities that help further the knowledge, appreciation and enjoyment of the geology, culture, history, and natural beauty of the Grand Coulee areas (Lower and Upper Grand Coulee).
Applications are due September 30 and awards will be announced early October. Please review the information and, if you have any questions, contact Eldene Wall at firstname.lastname@example.org or 509-669-6838.
