Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $5,000 to Illinois and Indiana nonprofit community-based organizations and schools in eligible counties to improve educational outcomes. Funding is intended for programs and activities that improve educational involvement and enhance long-term attendance rates among students. Eligible projects benefit students in Clay, Parke, Sullivan, Vermillion, and Vigo counties in Indiana and Clark County in Illinois.

Project proposals will enhance student engagement, interest, and enthusiasm in their studies, and improve attendance. These outcomes contribute to better overall educational experience and readiness for local youth. Applications must identify a roadblock that prevents students from maintaining good attendance and/or being engaged in their studies. Proposals should also consider family involvement for youth who rely on a family member to get them to school (regardless of virtual or in-class setting) and assist with homework.

Proposals can target any age group or grade level and may take place at home or at a school, so long as there is approval by the principal. The projects may also serve any number of students, though the project must have a clear aim at students who are at risk of or have demonstrated a record of high absenteeism or have become disengaged from their studies. Proposals must also be structured to provide sustained development; working with students over time.
