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.  Please see your principal for more details.  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.


Evaluations are due by December 31, 2020


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.
