Are you someone who would like to have a direct effect on student education in our South Whidbey community?
Do you have a particular academic or artistic area of interest that is so near and dear to you that you would like to help foster it in our schools? If so, then the Foundation’s “Adopt-A-Grant program” will be of interest to you.
Each year the Foundation receives dozens of requests from teachers for innovative projects, programs, or equipment in order to enrich their students’ education. Our Board works hard to raise money to fund these grant requests, but we don’t always raise enough.
That’s where you come in.
We’re looking for sponsors – community patrons, really – to fund a particular grant proposal of special interest to them.
Former SWSF Board President Chris Gibson explains our “Adopt-A-Grant” program
Please note, you can adopt a grant already funded by the Foundation. Doing so simply frees up the previously earmarked Foundation funds to be used for another underfunded grant.
“Why not just make a general donation?” you might ask. Well, you certainly could, but we are trying to build relationships through this program. For instance, the teacher who requested the grant will contact you personally (if mutually agreeable) when you fund their classroom project to let you know how your donation is directly enhancing the learning experience of her or his students.
As you make charitable gifts, please consider our Adopt-A-Grant program.
