The purpose of the Cash for Classrooms grant is to provide a financial means for educators to create experiences that enrich and enhance student learning. Educators can apply for one of two grants annually:

  • Consumable supplies, subscriptions, and field trips; up to $200
  • Equipment, non-consumable supplies, technology or STEM resources; up to  $500

The Foundation partners with individuals, corporations, agencies, and organizations to provide the grant funding.

Are you an educator in the Davis School District? Is there an innovative learning project you’ve always wanted to do with your class? Do you have a need in your classroom that just isn’t being met with current funding? Could you use a little extra help getting the supplies your students need to be successful? We want to help you!

We invite you to apply for a Cash for Classrooms grant. This year, we will be using Donors Choose as our funding platform. The Foundation will COMPLETE up to the last $500 of your grant. ($200 for consumables supplies, subscriptions and field trips and $500 for equipment and non-consumable supplies)
