How to Request a Grant from the Foundation

To request a grant from the Foundation there are three steps.

  1. Print out and complete a Grant Application. Click here to download the application form. Please answer all the questions and be sure to include details on the budget for your project.
  2. Sign the application and make a copy for yourself.
  3. Bring the signed application to the South High Principal for review. If the Principal thinks the project is appropriate, she/he will sign it and send it to the Foundation. Check with the School Secretary to confirm the grant application was signed and sent to the Foundation.

Please note: The signed and completed grant application must reach the Foundation by the 15th of the month to be considered at the next Grants Committee Meeting. The Committee meets on the second Tuesday of each month during the school year. For example, a signed grant application received on September 13 will be reviewed at the October meeting. A signed application received on September 17 will be reviewed at the November committee meeting.

Tips for a grant application

Grants Committee Review

The Foundation’s Grants Committee will review the application and determine whether to fund the project. The committee may ask for additional information. If you would like to make a presentation to the committee about the project, please contact the Foundation office to make arrangements. Presentations are brief and limited to 10 minutes.

You will be notified by email about the committee’s decision approximately one week after the committee meeting, around the third Wednesday of the month. The committee may fund your request in full, provide partial funding or decline to fund the project.

If the project is funded you will receive additional instructions and information. Please read and follow those instructions.
