Submit your APEF Grant Requests
It is an annual tradition for the Austin Public Education Foundation to provide grants to instructional staff within Austin Public Schools to support and enhance learning. Since 1992, the Huntting and Packer Endowments have made these grants possible, growing from a single $500 grant that first year to 56 grants totaling $37,166.74 this last year.
Thank you, Hirsch Foundation – Introducing Building Level Grants
We are excited to introduce grants for building administrators, funded through the Hirsch Foundation. Last year, we took advantage of our new funding from the Hirsch Foundation to dream big and provide grants that impacted students at a broader level – benefitting all students within a building vs. a classroom or grade level. This year, administrators can submit their grant requests that enhance learning at their building. Last year, we approved 11 building-wide grants totalling $45,890.69!
In the midst of the pandemic, it was rewarding to be able to give back to the teachers and administrators of Austin Public Schools. They have worked tirelessly this year to continue providing high quality education to our students. We can’t wait to see your grant requests for this year.
