MAKES A DIFFERENCE

teaching helping student in class.

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 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), Literacy, Arts, Social Studies, Agriculture and Technology.

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.

In recent surveys, 99% of teachers indicated that their funding led to increased effectiveness of instructional strategies.

Classroom and School Enrichment grants are available from $100 to $2,000 per program or project.
