The Foundation awards Community Grants in the amount of $2,000 or less, to address specific, one-time, tangible, and immediate needs. Proposals are accepted on an ongoing basis from those on the "front lines" of education (the classroom teacher, student parent, school nurse, etc.) - the kind of need that those with funding authority don't have the resources to make a priority. Past grantees have received funding for student mini iPads, musical instruments, a bilingual soccer program for 1st and second grades.
