2018 Winter Teacher Creativity Mini-Grant Recipient

THE PORTLAND FOUNDATION

 The Board of Trustees of The Portland Foundation has approved Teacher Creativity Mini-Grants totaling $5,993.81 for 22 projects for the first half of 2018.

Teacher Creativity Mini-Grants are to help cover the costs ($300 or less) of learning experiences which teachers feel are important to their students, yet are outside the budget of their school.  This program is funded by the Virgil and Josephine Thomas Educational Fund, a component fund of The Portland Foundation, as a way to increase funding for educational projects and programs.

This program funds grants for field trips, classroom supplies, class projects, programs, music or art instruction, speakers, educational materials and seminars.  The purpose is to allow teachers to become more creative in their teaching styles and methods, without being hindered by cost.
