Grant Application Procedure


The Tam High Foundation is interested in funding projects that align with our mission:

“To foster the academic excellence and emotional and physical well-being of ALL Tam Students.In partnership with Tam High Faculty and staff, the Foundation funds grants which support innovative programs, cutting edge tools and equitable educational opportunities in education to provide every student with a pathway to success.”

The Foundation also seeks to support projects that have as broad an impact as possible.  All projects should enhance the learning environment, supporting staff and students in ways the District’s regular budget does not allow. Please note that the Fall and Spring Grant applications should not be used for clubs, field trips, substitute teachers or gift cards.

Dates and Deadlines

The Foundation awards grants in two cycles – Fall Grants (formerly known as Mini Grants), for proposals seeking less than $12,500, are awarded in late October. Spring Grants (formerly known as Major Grants), for projects of any amount are awarded in late April.  Applications are open NOW for the Spring Grants Season 2020 and will be accepted until 8pm on February 26th, 2020.

Grants will be voted on in the THF Board Meeting on March 23rd 2020 and applicants will be notified shortly thereafter.

Acknowledgements & Evaluation

Staff whose grants receive full or partial funding will be expected to acknowledge THF on all communication that pertains to their grant. Successful applicants are expected to keep track of their spending. In addition, they will be required to participate in our Annual Grants Presentation and an evaluation.
