Responsive Grants (one year grants)

Responsive Grants are focused on supporting teachers to bring new and innovative ideas to our schools.  We know that teachers hold the creative keys to inspiring and enriching the lives of our children.  We encourage proposals that focus on Foundation 65’s mission around arts and literacy and are especially interested in projects that support equity within our schools or serve our most marginalized youth.  Applicants are welcome to contact our offices to discuss project ideas before submitting a proposal.  Grant proposals may be submitted electronically or via mail to the Executive Director at the Foundation 65 offices.
