The Foundation seeks grants that enhance the excellence of the Hastings Public School system.  We welcome grants for all areas of the curriculum, including extra-curricular and co-curricular activities. Grants may also cover staff and curriculum development, including support for implementation.  We cannot fund travel or meals.  Coordination with the administration is essential and must be demonstrated in the grant application.  Grants will be announced and awarded in the spring.  All awardees are required to submit an evaluation form at the end of the school year.  Grant proposals are evaluated according to the following criteria:

  • Potential impact across grade, department, or school
  • Integration into the school program
  • Demonstration of long-term benefits of the project
  • Innovation and originality
  • Plan for evaluating effectiveness of project
