Foundation Announces Educational Grants

The Foundation For Allen Schools has announced that it will fund 136 Educational Grants for the 2019-2020 school year in Allen ISD, awarding a total of $125,194. This will bring the Foundation’s funding of grants to date to $1,234,386.

The grant awards will impact thousands of Allen ISD students and involve more than 250 teachers. This is the largest amount to date – and the largest number of grants – funded by the Foundation for a single school year. A complete list of the 2019-2020 Foundation grants can be found at www.allenisd.org/Page/55892.

The Foundation’s Educational Grant Program provides funding for innovative classroom and campus programs and projects. Foundation board members and Allen ISD Learner Services Coordinators review the grants each spring. Teachers and staff submitted 270 applications for 2019-2020 and about 50 percent were awarded funding.
