Each year the DFS Foundation awards $20,000 to $50,000 in grants based on teachers' requests for funding. Teachers submit grant requests in the fall at the beginning of the school year and by early December receive funding for curriculum or professional development based grants. In the past we have approved grants for items such as standing desks for Springhurst, playground equipment improvements (including the buddy bench), new computers for the science research program and new equipment for the IB film program. Over the past 3 years, we have also donated over $75,000 to IB teacher training, including the development of the middle years program (MYP) that has now been implemented in grades 6-10.
Your generous gift can be enhanced if you have access to a Matching Gift Program. Please consider submitting an application; it can make a significant difference!
