Incentives for Excellence Grants
The "Incentives for Excellence Grants" were established to directly enhance the instructional process for the benefit of students. For every dollar requested an equal match from a private source is required. Cache Education Foundation's Board of Directors approve funding for projects that show a direct link to curriculum enhancement and provide long term classroom resources. At this time, we are offering Incentives for Excellence Technology Grants for K-8 classrooms in the Cache County School District.
Technology Incentives for Excellence Grants are awarded twice per school year for Kindergarten through 8th grade. These grants are available for computers, projectors, digital cameras, scanners, smart boards, etc. Requested Foundation funds are between $250 and $1,500 with deadline for application on November 3, 2017 and February 2, 2018. Only one grant can be approved per school per funding round.
Tools For Schools Grants
As the saying goes, "Education is a debt due from the present to future generations". The Cache Education Foundation couldn't agree more, and has established an annual "Tools for Schools Grant" to supplement our Cache County classrooms with an arsenal of much-needed books, equipment and supplies. Grant requests are accepted once per year in the amount of $200 or less. Hundreds of teachers and their students benefit from these annual grants. Deadline for application is October 23, 2017.
