Grant Cycle for Educators
Fall 2017 Grant Applications!
Applications due to Principals: October 16, 2017
The Yarmouth Education Foundation’s (YEF) mission is to promote and enhance educational excellence by generating independent funding for innovative educational projects, enrichment programs and other creative educational initiatives that fall outside the standard budget and support the curriculum. The Foundation will allocate funds during two grant cycles (fall and spring) each year. Fall 2017 Grant Application Guidelines are provided.
