Enhance Educational Excellence Grant

This grant program most directly aligns with historic grant submission to the Foundation. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the Foundation Director, Shelley Schroeder, if you have questions about the program to apply for. You can call her at (319) 730-3638 or email at [email protected].

Grants made from the Foundation’s endowed funds will, in most cases, be targeted toward projects that help the District provide students with the skills, knowledge, and expertise they need to succeed in today’s workplace and in their personal life. This includes mastery of core subjects such as science, reading, history, language arts, and math.
