Classroom & Matching Schoolwide Grants

All teachers and schools can use some financial help. National data shows that the average teacher spends $745 on supplies and needed material for their classroom. The mission of YCEF is to provide funding for education related projects particularly in classrooms supporting disadvantaged communities, recognize outstanding educators in each of our schools and promote awareness of the positive impact of our Yavapai County Schools

This past year, 2022-23, 75% of all classroom grants went to schools with 50% or greater population on free or reduced cost lunch programs.

Teachers and schools are encouraged to submit grant applications for Classroom  Grants or  Matching Schoolwide Grants. Applications will be accepted from August 28, 2023 (applications open) to October 12, 2023 (applications close). Grant awards will be announced early November. Funds will be available mid-November.
