Enrichment Opportunities for Kids through Classroom Grants
Each fall, the Albany Public Schools Foundation accepts grant applications from teachers in the Greater Albany Public School District for innovative programs, tools and supplies supporting enrichment opportunities for students in the areas of art, music, science and health/wellness. Typical grant requests range between $200 - $1000.
The Albany Public Schools Foundation awarded $50,000 in classroom grants in the 2019-20 school year. Funded projects ranged from electronics and robotics, to materials for art, reading, music and physical education.
Primary funding for the Classroom Grant Program comes from proceeds of the iSwim for kids, iRun for Kids and iCelebrate Kids Benefits Gala fundraising events. Individuals may also contribute to the classroom grant fund.
