Education Foundation Grants
FY 2020 Van Buren Education Foundation Mini Grants
Harmony Elementary and Douds Elementary certified staff will be able to apply for up to $450 per teacher for classroom projects.
Teachers can go to the link:

to apply or we can send over printed applications.
Last year, we had $400 per teacher. This year, we increased that amount to $450.
They turn in their application to the building principal by early September. We then meet and go through the applications and approve them at our fall meeting, inform the board and we take care of ordering and delivering.
We alternate between secondary school and elementary each year. Last year, we approved more than $9,500 for the high school. We have been saving up funds in anticipation of the reorganization and we absorbed assets from another foundation this year, so we are able to double the amount we budget for mini grants.
