How To Apply

We ask that you read “What We Fund” above and, if you have not discussed your grant idea with someone from the Foundation previously, please contact hmcsherry@bronxvilleschool.org before you apply.

The final submission deadline for grant applications is Monday, March 1, 2021, however, applications can be submitted at any time prior to that date and are welcomed in advance of the deadline.

Please respond to all questions in a concise manner and be as specific as possible.

Please note that the Grant Application Form does not save as you enter the data, however, when you "Submit" you will get a copy of your proposal emailed to you.  You can update from that email under "Edit Submission". Even if your application is not 100% finalized, you are encouraged to “Submit” the grant and revise along the way.

For the Budget Section, you are strongly encouraged to use and submit the "Grant Budget Planner " to aid in submitting this Grant Application.

Please limit documentation to necessary materials and attach in the Grant Application Form where available. After your application has been submitted, a member of the Foundation Grants Committee will contact you to clarify any questions. At that time, you will have an opportunity to share any additional materials and/or information before review by the entire Foundation Board.

Please submit a separate application for each grant request.

Decisions on applications will be made at the Foundation’s May board meeting and applicants will be informed no later than Wednesday, May 19, 2021. All grant awards are subject to approval by the Board of Education. The Foundation board will, on occasion, consider off-cycle grants earlier than the May meeting only when the Foundation has sufficient funds and implementation of or payment for the contemplated project must occur prior to June 2021.
