Grants for Teachers in Spotsylvania and Fredericksburg!
Grant funding for the 2021/2022 school year!
Local educators are invited to apply for grant funding through three funds at The Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region: the Trust for Public Education IV Fund, the Haven Make a Difference Fund and the Governors Row Fund. These three funds will collectively award over $20,000 to local educators.
The Haven Make a Difference Fund and the Governors Row Fund for Teachers and Students will award a combined $18,000 in grants that will benefit teachers and students in Fredericksburg City Schools. These two funds were established by local developers with the commitment to support local teachers and students in the City of Fredericksburg each year. Teachers may apply for funding to expand their teaching skills or provide classroom resources. Successful proposals will feature innovation, be based on solid research and best practices in teaching and include professional development that directly impacts students.
For educators in Spotsylvania County, the Trust for Public Education IV Fund will award $8,500 in grants to assist public school teachers in their efforts to further develop their classroom skills or build programs to cultivate strong youth character. This fund was established in 1999 by NTS Virginia Development Company, developers of the Fawn Lake community, who made a commitment to donate a portion of their profits on every home listed with the Fawn Lake Real Estate Company to support the students of Spotsylvania County.
The deadline to apply is 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 12, 2021.
