Classroom & School 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. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, these needs are increased because of distance learning and the fact that students cannot share materials and supplies. This is exacerbated by the 66% of Yavapai County schools that support communities in need including communities of color. Many of our schools in this time of pandemic deliver classroom work assignments directly to students in poor communities along with food and other necessities of life.

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 School Grants. Applications will be accepted from January 19, 2023 (applications open) to April 4, 2023 (applications close). Grant awards will be announced mid-April. Funds will be available late April.
