The FFHEF Innovation Grant Program is open to FPS staff, FPS PTAs/PTSAs, FPS booster and student-led groups, along with existing and new school support organizations.

Foundation grants promote educational leadership and academic excellence in four investment areas: Technology Integration, Scholastic Achievement, the Arts, and Extracurricular Enrichment. The Foundation encourages projects which can be developed, shared, and replicated throughout FPS.

Since its inception in 2012, the Foundation has awarded more than $295,000 for 282 projects.

With the generous support of donors, the Foundation offers three types of grants: Mini Grants (up to $750), Collaborative Grants (up to $1,500), and Major Project Grants that have impact across the District (up to $5,000). Major Project Grants submitted will be reviewed with District leadership prior to the Grant Allocations Committee’s decision.

The number of grants awarded will be dependent upon the number of applications received, District initiatives, and available funds.

Applications are only available online at https://tinyurl.com/FFHEFInnovation2018. Applicants must register prior to applying for a grant and can now save their work before submitting. Paper applications will not be accepted.

The application deadline is 11:59 p.m. on Monday, November 19. Awards will be publicly announced on Wednesday, February 6, 2019.

The Farmington/Farmington Hills Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
