BHS Foundation Grants Make a Difference!
Overview of Grants
The BHSF funds a portfolio of grants that provide incubators/catalysts for learning and align with the district's strategic initiatives. Foundation grants support opportunities to explore educational perspectives, ideas, and challenges. They promote educational excellence, provide critical resources, align with key initiatives, and complement the BHS operating budget.
Our grants target programs and initiatives in the areas of Academics (English, Social Studies, STEM, World Languages), the Visual, Performing and Applied Arts, and Health & Physical Education and Athletics.
Scope of Grants
Grants are awarded in a range of sizes from those that impact the entire district to more targeted initiatives for specific schools, programs, grades, classrooms, teams or clubs.
District Grants fund broad educational initiatives that typically impact a large proportion of students in the district, often across multiple schools.
- Educator Grants target enrichment activities within a specific population, such as a classroom or club. They target Academics (English, Social Studies, STEM, World Languages), the Visual, Performing and Applied Arts, and Health & Physical Education and Athletics.
- New in the fall of 2020, the Lightning Grant Program! Lightning Grants are awarded on an accelerated timeframe and support teachers in distance learning. Some examples of Lightning Grants include online learning subscriptions, social-emotional learning resources, STEM kits, student manipulatives, online assessment tools and more.
