Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Massachusetts nonprofit organizations and individuals to enhance the educational experience at eligible schools. Applicants must contact the school principal prior to submitting an application. Funding is intended for activities and initiatives that enrich the educational experience for students and teachers at the Williamstown Elementary School (WES). The Fund is intended to make possible exceptional educational opportunities designed to take students beyond the basics.

Proposal must augment and enrich the educational experience of WES students and should not be part of core curriculum. Possible projects include, but are not limited to: new programs that augment the curriculum, extra-curricular activities, independent study, individual creative projects (in or outside the classroom), visiting speakers or artists; scientific, athletic, or technical equipment*; class field trips. *If you are requesting funding for equipment, please indicate why the item is not covered through the school budget.

The fund seeks primarily to help cover the direct costs of projects (not salaries or stipends). Priority will be given to proposals that rely on volunteer efforts and that show additional means of support. Due to other means of financial support for teacher professional development, priority will generally be given to grant applications that support the student educational experience. 
Preference is given to proposals that will serve as a catalyst to broader educational opportunities and are likely to have a lasting connection with other school offerings.
