Open Grants and Grants-to-Educators

The Foundation has developed two distinct grant programs designed to promote more effective teaching and learning in Ohio’s secular schools: Open Grants and Grants-to-Educators. 

Open Grants are available to any public school district, 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization that assists elementary and secondary public schools in Ohio, or any non-religious private school in Ohio working in conjunction with public schools. Open Grant requests must be for one year only. The average Open Grant is $12,000.

The Foundation also offers Grants-to-Educators. These grants encourage individual educators to try innovative, smaller-scale activities within their classroom, school, or district. The maximum grant is $3,000. Any teacher (Pre-K – grade 12) or administrator in Ohio’s secular primary or secondary schools can apply for a grant.
