2018/19 Grant Selections -Total Contribution $9,550Top of Page
At the October 2018 meeting, the Cedar Springs Education Foundation (CSEF) reviewed grant requests submitted by Cedar Springs teachers from all grade levels. These grants are for a wide variety of items from books to classroom accessories and more. The CSEF’s goal in selecting the grants are requests that will impact the most students for the greatest period of time at the same time enhancing the classroom experience. It is a difficult task to pick from so many great ideas.
CSEF President Audrey Debri thanked requesters, “For all the innovative, thoughtful, and creative grant proposals that were submitted for the October round of grants!” She encouraged those not selected to submit their request in the Spring when the next round of proposals will be reviewed.
Funding used is based on the interest earned by the Foundation’s investment held by the Grand Rapids Community Foundation. If you would like to donate to the CSEF, go to our Facebook page at Cedar Springs Education Foundation.
