Grants Program

The TCSD Foundation Grants program is an open grant program.  The Grants Program awards grants to TCSD teachers and community 501c3 organizations interested in implementing innovative educational projects.

TCSD Foundation Grant Award Guidelines

Proposals to enhance the education of Trumansburg students will be considered provided that the proposed project directly involves and/or benefits students, and cannot be funded through existing avenues of school district support.  Projects that are designed to fill gaps in the school budget historically remain unfunded by the TCSD Foundation.

The most competitive grants are those that reach a large number of TCSD Pre-K-12 students and focus on forward-thinking programming that enhances and supplements the K-12 curriculum.  TCSD has supported proposals building collaboration, such as across grade levels, an entire grade level or department, between community and school, etc.  Program proposals should include a detailed  budget for implementing the project, including associated materials or technology acquisition.

TCSD Foundation Grants are not designed to fund professional development.

TCSD Grants are awarded on a smaller scale to community organizations, provided the applicant is a 501c3 organization. Partnerships between the Trumansburg School District and community organizations are welcome.
