Program Grants

EducationMatters offers program grants to innovative public education enhancement programs to help elementary and secondary school students in the Calgary Board of Education (CBE), excel and enrich their learning experiences. All program grant applications are due September 30, 2019.

Support may be given to pilot programs, ongoing programs or one-time initiatives and an entire program OR a key element of a program may receive funding. These programs should address our priorities and have a direct impact on Calgary Board of Education (CBE) students. Preference will be given to programs/initiatives that are sustainable and adapted to a very broad student population. Certain training, fees, equipment, and supply costs may receive funding, but general operating costs will not be supported.

Funding Information

Program grant dollars typically range from $1,000 – $25,000, and are made available through donor funding.

Important Notes:

  • Funding is not guaranteed
  • Grants are awarded based on available grant dollars and the program’s/project’s alignment with EducationMatters’ mission & mandate
  • For reporting purposes, applicants should establish a baseline (or beginning reference point) of information that can be used for comparison when evaluating the overall impact and success of the program/project
  • Additional funding for the same program will be considered but program managers are encouraged to develop a plan of support beyond our initial grant
