Community Partnership Grant Proposal Request

This program supports grants that enhance learning through community partnerships and targeted funding opportunities that extend CEF’s efforts in art, music, technology and other vital areas to bolster educational support services and enrich educational programming. The Foundation aims to fund proposals that develop and sustain valuable links with nonprofit organizations that share our commitment to support CUSD students and families.

CEF invites grant applications from nonprofit organizations with proof of 501(c)(3) status that have filed no less than two years of IRS 990 tax forms. The applicant must have a presence in southern CA, and should demonstrate service to members of the Claremont community.

Teacher Innovation Grant Guidelines and Application

The focus of these grants is enhancing access to creative, project-based learning for CUSD students. Projects may align with CEF’s traditional areas of focus (art, music and technology) or explore other subject areas (humanities, sciences, etc). Teachers may apply individually; groups of teachers may submit a proposal together for a collaborative school-site or grade-level project; or principals may submit a proposal for a school-wide project. Partnerships with community groups on projects that hold promise for enhancing learning in CUSD are welcome.
