Thank you for your interest in the A+ Education Foundation grant program. The Foundation was formed to provide charitable grants to fund programs, equipment, supplies, materials, and training for professionally certified educators. The core mission of the Foundation is to enable educators more resources and opportunities to further their knowledge.

Grant Eligibility Criteria:

  • Applicant must be a professionally certified educator employed at a pre-K to 12 school within A+FCU’s field of membership.
  • Applicant must be an A+FCU Primary Member, meaning their name is first on a joint account or the only name on the account, or become a member before submitting a grant application. In addition, the account must also be "in good standing" (no overdrawn or delinquent accounts).
  • Applicant must not be a relative of an A+ Education Foundation Board of Director.

Grant Application Criteria:

  • Original narrative required; duplicate grant submissions will not be considered. This means educators must submit their own application with unique responses even if they are working on the project with multiple people.
  • There are five application sections evaluated including: purpose/goals, description, timeline/schedule, evaluation, and budget. The purpose/goals section will be highly considered.
  • Applicant may submit one grant application per year.
  • To ensure anonymity during the selection process, the selection committee will not have access to applicants’ names. For this reason, please do not refer to your name, district, the name of your campus, or anything specific to your campus (i.e.: campus location, campus colors, or mascot) in the Grant Information section of the application. Including restricted information will be cause for disqualification.
  • Principal’s acknowledgement and application must be submitted by Wednesday, May 31, 2023. Incomplete applications will be ineligible for consideration.

Grant Awards:

  • Grants of up to $1,500 awarded. Grants may be used toward supporting new and ongoing programs, equipment, supplies, materials, and training. Grant funds may not be used for substitute pay, teacher salaries, teacher stipends, or travel-related expenses.
  • The number of grants awarded each year is dependent on the amount of grant funds received during the year, the number of grant recipients, and the amount of the grants requested by applicants.
  • Grant expenditures must be completed by March 31, 2024.
