Turning Dreams into Reality
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.
Creativity and Innovation
Applications – Completed grant applications should be submitted to the Goshen Community Schools Foundation. Grant money being requested should fall in the range of $500-$5000. Goshen Community Schools Foundation requests that grants requiring less than $500 be requested on www.donorschoose.org.
Deadline – Completed applications must be received by May 15 and October 15, annually.
Completeness – Application must be typed. Each section must be completed and each question fully answered with appropriate evidence. Goshen Community Schools Foundations reserves the right to refuse consideration of any application which does not follow these guidelines.
Use the PROPOSED EXPENSES form to identify the costs involved with your proposal. All items must be individually listed. Be sure to include shipping and handling costs, transportation costs, etc. Community and parental involvement are important to our schools. Sometimes additional sources of funding are available. Please list other sources of funding you have pursued, the amount requested and the amount available from each in the OTHER SOURCES table.
A written evaluation is REQUIRED at the completion of the project to be considered for future grants.
