Education Foundation Grants


By Tom Noreen

At their October meeting, the Cedar Springs Education Foundation reviewed 17 grant requests submitted by teachers from all grade levels. These grants are for a wide variety of items from books to classroom accessories and more. The Foundation’s goal in selecting the grants are requests that will impact the most students for the greatest period of time at the same time enhancing the classroom experience. It is a difficult task to pick from so many great ideas. 

Foundation President Audrey Debri thanked requesters, “For all of the innovative, thoughtful, and creative grant proposals that were submitted for the October round of grants!” She encouraged those not selected to submit their request again in the spring, when the foundation will review the next round of proposals. 

Funding used is based on the interest earned by the Foundation’s investment held by the Grand Rapids Community Foundation. If you would like to donate to the Foundation, go to our Facebook page at Cedar Springs Education Foundation.
