Designated Keystone Fund Areas
The Fayetteville Public Education Foundation’s endowment is made up of a merged pool of Keystone Funds. Keystone grant donors contribute to the Foundation’s endowment generating income for teacher grants annually to ensure vital programs remain in place for future generations. A Keystone grant fund is distributed through the Foundation’s grant process.
- A majority of the endowment is left unrestricted, enabling the grant applicant to dream big and create innovative and pioneering programs.
- However, some for the funds are designated for a specific purpose, program or department per the wishes of the donor.
- FPEF honors each Keystone Designation Area in our grant distribution. Applicants are encouraged to review the Keystone Designation Areas and see if your project falls in a designated area.
