We are seeking 1-3 rural projects to fund through our annual Chinese New Year Gala.
If you have a compelling story for something you're seeking funding for, please send it to me!
- This is something that must appeal to the average donor who may not have the best understanding of the inner-workings of the education world. We're looking for stories that will really touch the heart.
- Our live appeal portion typically raises $40,000-$50,000, so your requests can range from $15,000 to $50,000
- If selected as one of our featured projects, you and a guest will be invited to our event (travel and lodging provided).
The event is
February 9, 2019 at the Grand Hyatt Downtown Denver, but please send all letters BEFORE you head out for winter break in DECEMBER (no need for a full grant request - just a letter).
Grant Name: Student Re-engagement Grant (SRG)
Letter of Intent Due Date: November 30, 2018
Application Due Date: February 19, 2019
Duration: 3 years - funding for each grant year will be contingent upon the annual appropriations by the Colorado State Legislature
The Colorado Student Re-engagement Grant Program (SRG) is authorized by C.R.S. 22-14-109 to assist local education providers in providing educational services and supports to students to maintain student engagement and support student re-engagement at the secondary level. Eligible Applicants:
- School District
- District Charter School (note: the charter school's authorizer will be the fiscal agent, if funded)
- Institute Charter School
Note: LEAs who have received previous funding through the Student Re-engagement Grant are eligible to apply unless they received funding in FY2018-2019.
Funding priority will be given to eligible applicants that seek to improve postsecondary and workforce readiness indicators and student re-engagement at high-need schools. "High need" is determined by the school's performance rating for Postsecondary and Workforce Readiness (PWR) and by the school's state and federal designation through ESSA.
Funding: The annual grant request should not exceed $100,000 per recipient school. Funding from this opportunity may be used to support activities and strategies focused on student engagement and student re-engagement and improvement of PWR performance indicators.
