YSF grant funds should supplement not supplant programs funded with additional grants, community funding, PTA or ASB fundraisers, and YSD funds.
Grant Proposal Applications will be accepted September 1 through close of business April 18. To allow for adequate review and approval we ask that grants be submitted at least 30 days prior the project/funding deadline.
During the school year the YSF Grant Allocations Committee meets the end of each month to review requests. Funding recommendations are then submitted to the Board of Directors for review and approval.
Grant applicants will be notified in writing upon approval by the YSF Board of Directors.
Each application must be approved by the building Principal and by the corresponding department director.
Each approved grantee must submit an impact statement.
Our goal is to help our community by providing funds for better education. Make sure to elaborate on how your request will better the education environment, provide better education opportunities, or allow students to expand on the current curriculum.
Applications received by the first day of the month will be reviewed at that month's board meeting. Grant recipients will be notified by the 15th of each month.
