A grant can be $1,000 or under. A grant is one-time funding, and it must be innovative and original to the district. In addition, to qualify for a grant, funds are not available through the district to cover the cost.
Thank you for your interest in the Niles Education Foundation (NEF) grant/project program. The program is open to all certified Niles Community Schools staff members. A project can be more than $1,000 and it may be a one-time gift or take up to three years to complete.
Fundraising is the lifeblood of our organization. The Niles Education Foundation has more goals, programs, and opportunities than can be handled by the organization alone. With the help of many supporters, the Foundation raises funds for programs that cannot be funded with tax dollars.
