Classroom Fund Grant Applications Now Open

The Classroom Fund is now accepting grant applications for the 2019-2020 school year from teachers in the El Paso and Las Cruces areas.

The Classroom Fund was created in 2011 as a special project of the El Paso Community Foundation. It provides requested classroom materials directly to educators in the El Paso and Las Cruces areas.

The application is open to full-time, pre-K through 12th grade educators. This includes public or private school teachers, librarians, guidance counselors, school nurses, and full-time teachers who may also act as coaches. Eligible candidates must spend at least 75% of their time working directly with students.

Requests must be for materials your students will use or experience directly.

Grants will be for $1,000 or less.

Grant recipients are required to follow up with a report on the use of materials through photographs, video or a written letter.

The deadline for grant applications is June 2, 2019.

Grant requests are reviewed by The Classroom Fund Review Committee and are approved based on merit and available funds. All grantees will be notified the first week of July.
