At the heart of the Foundation is a commitment to inspire, educate, and grow our students and staff. We accept donations to ensure the future: every dollar that is donated to the Foundation is a dollar towards our valued education system. Each year the ECPSF awards grants to educators to try out new and innovative teaching methods, establish and maintain value-added programs, or provide students with their greatest needs. While the cost of awarding a grant is easily calculated, the value it creates—in generating an environment of inspiration, excitement, and learning for students and educators alike—is truly immeasurable.


ECPSF Grants and Scholarships

The Eau Claire Public Schools Foundation awards grants to schools for  programs that provide our students with value-added learning opportunities, to fulfill their greatest needs, and for teachers professional development.

Scholarships are awarded through the high school guidance counselors.  Recipients are notified in spring of their senior year. Students may request scholarship grant funding in fall and spring of their first year in college using the online form.

The Trustees seek applications twice a year, in January and October for grant funds to support projects or programs that provide our students with value-added learning opportunities or fulfill their greatest needs. Grants are issued on a competitive basis, and preference is given to proposals that are innovative and seek to inspire.
