AHEF Fall mini-grant applications for 2019-2020 open now
The Anoka-Hennepin Educational Foundation (AHEF) has opened a second, Fall round of grants for the 2019-20 school year. Described as “mini-grants” because each grant is capped at $500, this new round of grants is in response to teacher and staff feedback about the annual grant process.
“We had feedback from teachers that our annual process, which is open in the spring and awarded for the next school year, doesn’t always work for them. Teachers may not know what grade they will be teaching the following year, or what unique needs or challenges their students may have,” said Tess DeGeest, executive director of AHEF. The new mini-grant process is designed to address these needs.
“Fortunately, donations to AHEF have been growing. It is because of our donors, that we can sustain this new round of grants,” said DeGeest, “The gratitude goes to the donors.”
The grant guidelines are here. Applications close on October 1, 2019 for implementation in the 2019-20 school year. AHEF aims to award ten grants for a total of $5,000 this Fall. These grants will complement the annual grants already awarded for this school year.
