FMCCS Grant Programs Description
The Foundation awarded its first grants in 1976 and continues to award grants annually for the benefit of local students. We believe that every educator should have the resources necessary to ensure that all students are successful. To date, FMCCS has awarded more than $1,900,000 in educational grants to MCCSC faculty, staff and students.
The following charts will help applicants determine which grants program best aligns with their funding needs. All MCCSC faculty, staff, and students are eligible to apply.
All applications and guidelines are available through the “Grant Applications” section of our website.
Any MCCSC employee or student may apply for grants from the Foundation. However, High Impact Innovation grants must be presented by an administrator. Applications and guidelines are available on this website for all of the Foundation’s grant programs. For more information contact your building representative (full list available here).
Despite these funding opportunities, many educators will still find it necessary to either fund learning materials through out-of-pocket spending or forgo opportunities for their students. To provide teachers and other front-line educators with another option, the Foundation is partnering with DonorsChoose.org, a web-based program that provides a simple way to fulfill needs in the classroom and to foster innovation in our public schools. Teachers post projects online and donors choose what they’d like to fund.
