How It’s Done
Students, district employees or organizations must complete a Funding Application to be considered for funding by the District 5 Foundation.
Student Research Projects
Each year, we fund significant research projects for students at each of the district’s high schools. Students must apply for grants.
Applications are taken in the late spring. Applicants will be notified before the school year begins.
Start-Up or Innovative Programs
Many of the projects we fund are ongoing, district-wide programs. However, a significant portion of our yearly budget is set aside for start-up programs and innovative initiatives. Money for such projects is funded to begin in August of each year.
Applications are taken in the late spring. Applicants will be notified before school begins each year.
Guidelines and Application
We have prepared comprehensive guidelines that describe criteria, eligibility, evaluation process and more.
