SPOKANE, WA – Since its founding in 2006, the Spokane Public Schools Foundation (SPSF) has provided over $500,000 in grant funds that directly benefit thousands of Spokane Public Schools students.
“Our Foundation is very pleased to announce the latest cohort of grants for the 2022 - 2023 school year,” said Katie Scofield, SPSF President and credit union executive. “This year the Foundation funded $102,570.00 in total, the largest amount in our sixteen-year history. This grows our total giving to well over $500,000.” Of the 88 applications received, 65 were selected to award full or partial funding. Grant amounts ranged between $140.00 and $2,500.00.
SPSF grants are made directly to educators in classrooms and schools to support a myriad of innovative new programs. These programs often focus on STEAM, and they enhance learning to create a challenging curriculum for all students. Foundation grants help bring the creativity of our educators to life in support of our local youth. SPSF provides the funding needed to allow for specialized programs, furniture, supplies and technology that would otherwise not be available.
