Racial Equity Grants

Applications will be available to for the 2017-18 school year in April 2017.

With the creation of a Racial Equity Grant, the Foundation seeks opportunities to increase the capacity of our schools to understand the barriers to success and full inclusion for our students and families of color. The goal of the Racial Equity grant would be to include people of color in school and classroom decision making and engagement, decreasing racial disparities and increasing racial equity in the school's culture and student achievement.

Unless our work acknowledges the assets within marginalized communities and inserts them into the discourse regarding disparities in achievement, we will not address the root source of disparity and student disengagement.

Fortunately, there are trained facilitators and technical assistants to support racial equity analysis. We can help you find someone to lead, support, and engage with you in this effort.

These grants may be used for activities such as training, coaching, assessment, or planning that build your school/PTO's capacity to advance racial equity. 

The maximum request is $5,000. A request at this level must impact at least a full grade level, or entire school or PTO group.
