Innovative Education and Literacy Grants
The Foundation awards competitive grants to Fargo Public Schools staff for innovative educational and literacy projects not funded by district, state, or federal monies.
Grants are awarded to give educators a chance to pilot a new idea or to supplement something they are already doing in the classroom.
This funding allows for innovative or cutting edge educational programs and projects—the kind of programs and projects that challenge teachers to take their students to the next level of learning and encourage students to push themselves to higher academic achievements.
Our educational grants and programs enrich children’s lives, helping them to grow, learn and enter the world more confident and better prepared to compete in the 21st century. These grants are made possible through established endowment funds listed below, and annual contributions from the greater community.
