Teacher Mini-Grants

The Allendale Community Foundation invites our schools to apply for mini-grant funding to try out a new idea or buy the “extras” for an already great lesson plan or project.

Grants of up to $250 are awarded to teachers to enhance their instructional program. Any teacher, counselor, or administrator employed in a public or private school located in the Allendale area is eligible to apply. Grants are limited to one per classroom and one per teacher per school year.

The Teacher Mini-Grant application deadline is every September, with award notifications occurring in November.
