Grant Applications for the
2020-21 School Year Have Closed
You can still submit applications for Fund-A-Teacher, and applications for fall programs open Aug. 1
NCEF is always looking for new ways to support NCSD teachers, so that you have the tools you need to be successful.
In addition to helping our schools through program grants and discretionary grants, NCEF supports teachers in two ways: by promoting your projects through our Fund-a-Teacher program, and by funding your enrichment grant requests.
Fund-a-Teacher gives teachers access to community crowdfunding, with minimal work on your part. All you have to do is submit your project through the application portal below and NCEF will add it to our website.
The usual time frame for a project to appear on the website is seven days. After that, you and your students' parents will be able to promote your project to your networks. NCEF will also share your project with our social media followers.
Once you've reached your funding goal, NCEF will send you a check. 100% of the money raised through this program goes directly to the teachers!
NCEF Enrichment Grants
NCEF awards over $35,000 per year to NCSD teacher-led programs which meet our Enrichment Grant guidelines.
After you submit your application, we'll post it to the Fund-a-Teacher page so that it can attract community funding, but NCEF may fund your project in its entirety if no other donations have been received.
To better serve our teachers, NCEF responds to your grant applications as quickly as possible. Most approved projects are processed and funded within three weeks of your submission date.
You can submit enrichment grant applications through the portal below. It doesn't save your progress, so we recommend writing your responses offline, using NCEF's enrichment grant application worksheet. This will help you get an accurate word count.
