The Santa Rosa Education Foundation supports teachers through a myriad of grants including our annual Teacher Grants program. Below you will find links to current grant opportunities.
Santa Rosa Education Foundation was pleased to award 53 Teacher Grants totaling $53,000 to Santa Rosa public educators last year. SREF, in partnership with the Consortium of Florida Education Foundations and the Florida Legislature, is enabling teachers to implement grants that engage students in active learning while increasing student achievement. Every donation to the SREF Teacher Grants program is matched dollar for dollar with state matching grant funds. Grant recipients must submit an evaluation of their project including a final budget, and receipts for purchases. Last year, our 53 Teacher Grants impacted over 11,300 students and 460 teachers. There is no doubt that these classroom grants make a difference in the lives of our students!
To donate to our Teacher Grants program and double the impact of your donation through our state matching fund, call 850-983-5043 or contact us by email.
2019-2020 Teacher Grant Applications will be emailed to all Santa Rosa School District Teachers and copies will be posted on this page in late September, 2019.
Thank you to our 2018-2019 Teacher Grant Sponsors:
