About the Grants

Cheyenne Schools Foundation Grants are made possible by generous contributions of local businesses, community members, service groups, and LCSD#1 employees.The Foundation Awards an average of $25,000 annually in grants to teachers who use the funding to enrich their curriculum and provide unique learning opportunities.

Two types of grants are awarded:

  • Excellence in Education grants of up to $3,000
    • Preference is given to those who reach out to the community to fulfill part of their grant project. Limit of 1 Excellence Grant per school, per year.
    • All materials purchased with these funds must stay at the project site.
  • Student Enrichment grants of approximately $1,000
    • There is no limit on the number of grants that can be awarded to each school each year.

One type of funding available (for non-grant-related funds):

  • Request for Funds Program has no specified amounts.
    • The purpose is to provide additional funds for special circumstances once the fall funding process is complete. Limited funds are available, and should support the CSF mission statement. Applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis for requests outside the fall grant process. Your request may be funded if the CSF board has sufficient monies.

Teachers who receive funds are expected to share the results of their programs with the LCSD#1 professional academic community and the Cheyenne Schools Foundation board. This ensures that successes are shared, new programs and teaching methods are explored, and the overall educational environment is strengthened.
