Enrichment Opportunities for Kids through Classroom Grants

Note:  In order to best meet the needs of students during distance learning, we have transitioned the classroom grant program to distance learning grants (this year only).  APSF will not have a classroom grant cycle during Fall of 2020.  The applicant for the distance learning grants will be the school principal.  Thank you!

Stay tuned fall of 2021 for an opportunity to apply for an APSF classroom grant.  Grants will be offered 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.

$55,000 in Distance Learning Grants Awarded!

The Foundation, in response to the challenges of learning and teaching during the Covid pandemic, created the  Distance Learning Grant program to provide additional resources for schools to help their students. This  program, which took the place of the classroom grant program (2020 only), was put in place to  provide each school principal with some additional funds to support students as they navigate learning  in an online environment.  
Funded grants ranged from online learning supplies such as headphones, cameras, whiteboards, and manipulatives for math to virtual apps to help facilitate teaching. Some schools received funds for music instrument repair while others asked for alternative seating and sensory tools to help students cope with prolonged time in front of a screen.
