School & Classroom Enrichment
A community engaged in making education a priority will transform Hillsborough County.
We foster excellence and innovative ideas for impactful change in public education.
Effective teachers are foundational to student achievement in the classroom and beyond. Providing teachers with funding for engaging educational opportunities promotes better academic results for students.
MAKES A DIFFERENCE
School and Classroom Enrichment grants support principals’ and teachers’ innovative ideas and projects to better engage student learning.
The funding provides unique opportunities to enhance or expand learning through curriculum or school enrichment activities in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math), Literacy, Social Studies and more.
Hillsborough Education Foundation wants to ensure that teachers have the resources they need and all students graduate from high school prepared for success. These projects help excite young minds beyond what some school budgets may allow.
Our online grant portal allows donors to search teachers’ requests by school or subject and provide funding support.

WE BRING THE COMMUNITY TOGETHER TO CHAMPION INNOVATIVE IDEAS AND OPEN DOORS TO NEW POSSIBILITIES.
To facilitate this program, we use an online grant application platform that enables teachers to post school projects or programs to request funding from the community and Hillsborough Education Foundation.
In recent surveys, teachers say 90% of projects increased teacher effectiveness resulting in more inspired and motivated students, which positively impacted and improved students’ academic performance.
Through grant funded projects, teachers reported student improvement in:
- Subject matter knowledge
- Critical thinking
- Problem-solving skills
- Reading comprehension
- Social skills
Classroom and School Enrichment grants are available from $100 to $2,000 per program or project. The application window will re-open this summer for projects in the 2022-2023 school year.
