Success Stories – 21st Century Education Grants


Since our inception in 2010, 115 grants have been awarded totaling $234,099 that are currently supporting 28 schools in the district! The Success Foundation funds grants for innovative projects that fuel student achievement. From online curriculum to creation of projects with circuits to young authors, the teacher grant program allows teachers to stretch their students’ capabilities and dreams. Students are working with 21st Century tools that are developing college/career readiness. Funding for our grant program comes primarily from the Thrive on $5 Employee Giving Campaign from District 6 teachers and staff. At this time, grants can be written and our awarded for up to $2,500 per grant. Grants are selected by a small committee consisting of current and past board members and community volunteers.
