The Weston Education Foundation is calling for applications for their Community Education Grants Program. Download the Application Form here.
The purpose of these grants is to provide funds (up to $1,500) to Weston-based organizations or individuals to develop innovative educational programs that benefit their constituents and/or Weston residents. Preference is given to organizations that can demonstrate sustainable funding for their project after the completion of the grant. Additional criteria may be found here.
Since its inception in 1994, WEF has disbursed more than $850,000 in community, technology and teacher grants. Previous Community Education Grants have helped fund programs such as art and education classes at Lachat Town Farm, the Weston Historical Society oral history series, Weston Against Cancer’s educational fair, the Weston Town Library MakerSpace, and much more.
There are two grant cycles available for Community Education Grants: the first is from September 1-October 15; the second is from February 15-April 1. Community organizations must wait for 12 months to apply for another grant if they are a current grant recipient; additional grant requests are expected to cover new projects.
