The Ridgefield Public Schools Foundation is proud to sponsor the following programs
We are excited to announce the Innovation Grant sponsored by Columbia Credit Union. The Innovation Grant is a new program launching in 2018. It was created to honor our first board president and long serving member Paul Lewis. The RPSF will grant two $5,000 grants to a school, or school program in the Ridgefield School District. The purpose of the Innovation Grant is to fuel innovation in the classroom by incorporating new, creative, original, or out-of-the-box programs in schools and classrooms, which the school district is not able to support.
RPSF Impact Grants
The purpose of our Impact Grants Program is to help fund projects and initiatives related to each school’s School Improvement Plan. Grants are not intended to replace normal school budget funding or items that would be considered normal school supplies. The Foundation is committed to enhancing and enriching the education experience of all students. We seek to fund grants that support student inquiry and critical thinking and support initiatives to improve student learning. Congratulations to our 2017 Grant Recipients!
General Grants (unsolicited requests)
The RPSF wants to target the areas where the Ridgefield School District, PTA, PTO, the Ridge, and Booster Club funding are not able to meet the needs of our rapidly growing District. The Ridgefield Public Schools Foundation offers several grant opportunities to staff and students throughout the year. If your program or school has a need that does not qualify for or is outside the timeline of our established grants please complete the application for grant funding in order to make your request. Complete and submit the following application to email@example.com. The board meets once a month and reviews grant applications at each meeting.
