The Alumni Association grant process has been an annual event whereby teachers and principals make a request from the AA for up to $500. The AA Board reviews each grant request with the faculty liaison to understand the need in order to facilitate decision making. Grants have been awarded based on funds available each October and a formal grant announcement is made during this time.
Due to the ongoing needs throughout the school year, we will be reviewing our process to determine if we can improve how we meet these needs.
Unfortunately, we don't always have the available funds to meet every request and other ones that come in after the normal grant time period. Without alumni support through donations and participating in fundraising efforts we cannot be successful.
The Alumni Board strongly believes in our teachers and recognize the difficult job they tackle every day but we also know that Alumni grants and support to them are greatly appreciated.
