The Anchorage Schools Foundation was created to make grants in support of activities that enhance the success of students in the Anchorage School District. School professionals, including principals, teachers, nurses, counselors, administrators, and certified staff, are invited to apply.
Projects should reflect an innovative or creative approach to education; impact multiple students; demonstrate sustainability if start-up funds are requested, and be completed within the 2019-2020 academic year. Past grants have included awards to purchase classroom supplies, recreational equipment and uniforms, books, technology, instruments, and other material needs that support enhanced student success. Special consideration will be given to projects that support current ASD initiatives such as innovative mathematics projects, engaging seniors, supporting Pre-K, safe schools, and service-learning. Typical grant awards will range from $100 – $500. Applications are due by 5:00 pm AKST on Friday, November 1, 2019.
