The Eau Claire Public Schools Foundation Board of Trustees seeks applications for grant funds to support projects or programs that provide our students with value-added learning opportunities or fulfill their greatest needs.
Awards are governed by the established policies and award decisions will be made by the ECPSF Allocations Committee and the Board of Trustees at the fall meeting in October.
Applicants must be ECASD instructional or departmental staff with a signature from their school principal or building supervisor.
The foundation wishes to support innovative and/or creative projects that fulfill the following:
- Provides value added, innovative and enriching educational opportunities

- Fulfills greatest needs that will enhance learning and promote equity
Grants will evaluated on a competitive basis guided by the following criteria.
