Each year, WEF awards grants of up to $1,500 each to Windsor Public School educators to implement creative learning projects and programs. Totaling about $15,000 per year.

Grant applications for the 2023-2024 school year will be accepted from September 1  to October 29, 2023. Teachers, get your idea funded and give our kids the experiential learning opportunities that can spark their passions. The Grant Review Committee generally looks for a variety of proposals from all grade levels and schools that:

  • Are consistent with the Windsor Board of Education district and school goals
  • Impact students with varying learning abilities
  • Fall outside the regular operating budget
  • Will ultimately impact/benefit a large number of individuals; in other words, the impact of the grant is not a one-time benefit to a single group of students, but may benefit additional students long term.
  • Encourage professional collaboration.
  • Promote school and community communication.

For Grant Recipients: In accepting the Windsor Education Foundation’s grant award, you agree to provide a project report for the Foundation’s review. The report will be submitted at the conclusion of your project (or by September 30th at the latest) and will include:  A summary of the project including an indication of the number of students impacted and the ways in which their learning was enhanced by the grant, An assessment of the project’s success based on the evaluation procedures described in my grant application, and if possible, pictures (with releases) and/or any other visual representation of the students’ involvement or products. Failure to submit a summary report will result in ineligibility for future grants.
