EducationMatters offers program grants to innovative public education enhancement programs to help elementary and secondary school students in the Calgary Board of Education, excel and enrich their learning experiences. All program grant applications are due September 30, 2018.
Our key themes of support:
Program grant dollars typically range from $1,000 – $25,000, and are made available through donor funding.
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 have a direct impact on Calgary Board of Education (CBE) students and 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.
Successful grantees are required to provide EducationMatters with a final report outlining the program outcomes and usage of monies granted. This report will assist us in:
Responsibilities of the grantee are laid out in EducationMatters’ Final Report Guidelines.
NOTE: Failure to provide a final report will prevent the grantee (school/organization) from receiving future grants from EducationMatters.
