Teacher Grants

Educators have great ideas to augment the core curriculum. They have the passion to embrace their vocation and are eager to take the extra steps to increase the value of education for their students.  Teacher Grants provide the means to bring these ideas to fruition. The Foundation looks for requests that are innovative, creative, and encourage collaboration. Your grant requests should also provide long-lasting benefits so they can enrich the learning experience year after year. 

Because of the SCV Education Foundation, schools are producing newspapers and literary magazines, science classes have hands-on equipment, computer programs are updated, music is part of the day, fine art is created, and gardens grow.

A drop-in grant writing assistance clinic will be held on Thursday, December 5 from 4:00-5:30 pm. Stop by anytime and get assistance with your grant.  Our office is located at Newhall Elementary School on 11th Street, adjacent to the staff parking lot.
