Letter of Inquiry — Educational Impact Grants

Using the form below, submit a summary (limited to 1200 characters, or about 200 words) of your project. The typical grant award will be between $8,000 – $10,000. All projects should fall under one of the following priorities:

  • Assistance with enrollment development, including marketing and communications investments such as website enhancement, school signage, printed collateral, designers, social media enhancement, etc.
  • Fund development initiatives such as contract help for research, fundraising, and data entry, financial assistance with events, major gift appeals, and/or direct mail campaigns, etc.
  • Technology infrastructure including software, online services, whiteboards, 1:1 devices, and associated technical support and training.
  • Small capital improvements to facilities including repairs, upgrades in efficiency and safety, painting, landscaping, etc.

In evaluating grant inquiries, we consider the financial need of the school, the number of previous Educational Impact Grants received, whether the project fits the guidelines above, and how pressing the need is.
