Each year, the Moline Public Schools Foundation awards more than $25,000 in grants to teachers. Funding from MPSF contributes directly to enhancing academic skills in the classroom and promoting creative learning opportunities.
All teachers in the Moline-Coal Valley School District are encouraged to apply for grants to help fund projects in their classrooms. MPSF grants allow teachers to access extra resources that typically are not available through district funding.
Annual grant cycle timeline overview:
- Online grant application opens in January.
- Application deadline is set for early April of the same year.
- MPSF allocations committee meets in April to review the applications and recommends grants to the board.
- MPSF board votes to approve grant recipients at their May board meeting.
- Applicants are notified prior to the end of the school year.
MPSF is often able to fund or partially fund the majority of grant requests submitted, so ALL EDUCATORS are encouraged to apply if they have extra projects needing financial resources.
Questions can be emailed to Karen Dahlstrom, MPSF Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2022-23 MPSF Grant Application is now closed.
Applicants are encouraged to use and review the following documents:
MPSF HAVlife Activity Grants
The mission of the HAVlife™ Foundation is to prevent lost potential of youth ages 10-15 through support of participation in athletics, music and the arts. Moline-Coal Valley School District employees are encouraged to nominate students ages 10-15 for a HAVlife™ grant.
Grants can be used to fund participation in Moline-Coal Valley School District extracurricular activities or non-school based extracurricular activities. Funds awarded may cover the cost of program enrollment or equipment based on expressed need.
HAVlife™ approved extracurricular activities include music, arts, and athletics (i.e. swimming lessons, youth theater, football camp). Requests for additional extracurricular activities may be granted if a financial need is justified by the applicant.
Contact Karen Dahlstrom at email@example.com or 309-737-3698 about HAVlife grant availability for the 2022-23 school year.
