You Did That!

What We Do

Thank You! Here Are the Classroom Enhancement Grants Our Donors Funded this School Year

This school year, thanks to our donors, the East Grand Rapids Schools Foundation funded 33 classroom enhancement grants totaling more than $240,000.

The grants included everything from data collection devices for science classes at the high school to the creation of a broadcasting studio at the middle school to the revitalization of the learning commons at all the elementary schools. 

These grants are in addition to the funds for program support that the Foundation provides to the district. Between the program support and the classroom enhancement grants, donors to the Foundation made a powerful, positive difference in the lives of every student at each of our schools.

Here's a list of the grants that were funded this year, along with photos and articles about most of them. Enjoy! And thank you! Together, we're investing in our students, because the future belongs to Pioneers!
