2019 spring applications will open December 3, 2018
The Foundation is now offering the Pendergraft application in both the Fall and Spring semesters.
The grant guidelines and pre-qualification process have changed. Please read the guidelines carefully to ensure your project meets the scope, mission, and funding priorities of the Fayetteville Public Education Foundation.
FPEF funds projects and activities that go beyond the normal classroom experience. Projects with the greatest consideration for funding should meet at least ONE of the following priorities:
- Be original, pioneering, and demonstrate educational innovation
- Academically enhance the students’ experience in education
- Address Pre-K access, third-grade reading level, afterschool, enrichment and summer programs, and/or parental engagement
Subject Area: Applicants will be required to indicate the education subject area for their project, for example: English, Math, Social Studies, PE, Science, Communications, Health, Economics, Fine Arts, Other, etc.
Designated Grant Funds: The Fayetteville Public Education Foundation’s endowment is made up of a pool of Grant and Scholarship Funds. Some of which are designated for a specific purpose, program or department per the wishes of the donor. FPEF honors each of our Grant Funds in our distribution. Applicants are encouraged to review the Grant Fund designations and see if your project falls in a designated area.
A majority of the endowment is left unrestricted, enabling grant applicants to dream big and create innovative and pioneering programs. Funding is not contingent on your application falling into a Grant Fund designation area.
