The following items must be combined into one single PDF with all pages portrait-oriented. Please do not include cover pages or extraneous material other than what we have indicated below.

Proposal Text – The text of the proposal must be double-spaced, no more than five [5] single-sided, 8.5 x 11 inch pages, with 1-inch margins and 12-point font in which to present your proposal. Please keep to these limitations. The text should include:

  • A brief history of the school – please limit to one paragraph
  • Needs of the school for which the grant is requested
  • The amount requested
  • The proposed match and how the school plans to raise the match. Please keep in mind that the proposal should focus on the 9th-12th grade division of the school

Grant Budget – Please limit to one page and describe how the school plans to use the grant and the match to meet the proposal needs. We would like to see a general budget that outlines, at least in broad categories, how the funds would be spent.

Comparative School Operating Budget – Please limit to one page which should include the current year’s operating budget, the last school year’s operating budget and the last school year’s actual budget results.

Statement of Activity and the Statement of Financial Condition from the school’s audit.
