The Weston Education Foundation (WEF) is calling for applications for their Community Education Grants Program.
The purpose of these grants is to provide funds [generally up to $1,500] to Weston-based organizations or individuals to develop 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 WEF grant.
Since its inception, WEF has disbursed more than $800,000 in community, technology and teacher grants. Previous Community Education Grants have helped fund a journal writing program at our public library, computer classes at the Senior Center, the Sustainability Committee lecture series, a nursery school STEM grant 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.
