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.

Funding

The Albany Public Schools Foundation awarded $40,000 in classroom grants in the 2018-19 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.
