Please place the grant application copies in a 9 X 12 manilla envelope marked with the teacher name, grant name and school.

The BEEF Foundation’s goal is to fund projects for which the school district is not already responsible (ie supplies and consumables). Projects that expand, rather than augment, current curriculum and impact a high number of students are a priority. Grant proposals are considered once annually.
Teachers may work as a team and apply for a single grant, multi-teacher grant, or submit a grant for the individual classroom. Attachments are limited to 5 pages and may include evaluation instruments, brochures and/or equipment descriptions. No other external attachments may be submitted. Grant authors should remember that grant readers may not be educators, and should write accordingly. Grant recipients will be responsible for all financial records related to their project, and will be required to provide a detailed project summary report within one year of the grant award.
