Turning Dreams into Reality

Grant Application

  • Mission Statement:

    The mission of the Goshen Community Schools Foundation is to encourage and support creativity, innovation, and excellence that furthers opportunities for the educational community.

    Grants provide funding through community support, to the educators of Goshen Community schools for the creation and implementation of enriching academic opportunities for students of Goshen Community Schools. Goshen Community Foundation funds are not intended to be used either to provide for those portions of the educational program that are the responsibility of the public through the annual district budget, or to replace items of the educational program that would be eliminated as the result of a contingency budget. For example, they are not meant to furnish or upgrade equipment. Equipment can be requested, but the focus of the project must be instructional and impact student learning.
